Santa Dash

Santa Dash - This event is now closed 

AWARE is delighted to team up with Cool FM to be one of the nominated charities for the annual Santa Dash. AWARE is the only mental health charity among all the charities participating in the Santa Dash, therefore your support by fundraising for AWARE is very much appreciated and will help us to continue delivering our life saving services across Northern Ireland. This year’s Santa Dash is on Sunday 2nd December at 10am, kicking off from Writers Square on the Belfast City Centre route. 

It’s a fun-filled morning for families and groups. With hundreds of Santas expected to join us at our biggest Dash yet, we would love YOU to be one of them!

There are two options to get involved. Join Santa and the Cool FM Breakfast team on his sleigh as we sing carols and wander on the 2K family walking route. Or take part in our official verified and timed new 5K route and get your PB in a Santa suit! All 5K participants will receive a Santa Dash finishers medal.

Registration for is £7.50 per adult for the Original 2K Dash and £25 for the 5K, and includes your free Santa suit! We encourage everyone to raise £25 for your nominated charity.
