This year’s Santa Dash takes place on Sunday 5 December 2021 and will be known as the Appreciate Group Liverpool Santa Dash.

Due to Coronavirus restrictions and lockdown measures, the 2020 event was unable to go ahead.

However, BTR Liverpool introduced a virtual format enabling Santas to run 5K locally in their red or blue suit, allowing them to follow Government guidelines and maintain social distancing.

The virtual Santa Dash was embraced with enthusiasm, with almost 2,000 Santas taking part across Liverpool and the UK, as well as internationally in Australia, Denmark, Dubai, Germany, Sweden, and the USA.

Plans are now underway to bring the Liverpool Santa Dash to life once again as a public event as Covid-19 restrictions continue to be lifted.

Created by BTR Race Director Alan Rothwell, the Liverpool Santa Dash was first staged in 2004. A separate 1K Mini Dash for under 12s was added in 2007, and blue Santa suits were introduced three years later.

This year, the team behind the event are pulling out all the stops in a bid to enable participants get their Santa Dash fix in real-life. Any Covid-19 guidelines required at the time of the event will be followed.

Liverpool-based Appreciate Group is home to many of the nation’s most loved gifting and reward products including Love2shop,, and Park Christmas Savings. Based in the region for more than 50 years, Appreciate Group are committed to supporting their community.

Online entries for the Appreciate Group Liverpool Santa Dash 2021 are open now. The registration fee covers all costs to organise and deliver the event including road closures, safety measures, Santa suits, medals, and entertainment.
