One of Merseyside’s most popular events is the latest casualty of the Coronavirus pandemic – with this year’s Liverpool Santa Dash being brought to a halt. To keep the festive spirit alive, organisers BTR have announced a new virtual Santa Dash.
Highly regarded as the city’s kick-start to Christmas, this year’s event would have marked the 17th consecutive year of the festive fun run.
After working tirelessly and considering a number of scenarios with the ultimate aim of delivering the large-scale public event safely, BTR Liverpool say this is just not possible.
However, the team have come up with an exciting plan for 2020 to still enable eager dashing Santas to get their festive fix. The BTR Liverpool Santa Dash will go virtual on Sunday 6 December 2020 – so get festive and support some good causes.
The virtual option will enable Santas to still pull on their running shoes; dash socially distanced with a small group of friends; enjoy a festive fun run experience wherever they are located; and still earn the bespoke Santa Dash medal. And there’s still a choice of red or blue Santa suits.
Eight charities will benefit from this year’s event – with BTR Liverpool pledging to donate all profits between.
