Exeter City Football Club are delighted to once again be running the annual Charity Santa Dash, which takes place on Saturday, November 30.
Entrants will begin their mile-long Dash (or walk, or amble) from the Guildhall promptly at 1.15pm, and make their way through the City to St James Park stadium in good time for the 3pm kick-off against Bury.
All Dashers will be raising money for a range of charities close to their own hearts. Half of the proceeds will go towards the club’s Football in the Community programme – a registered charity that engages over 50,000 people in Exeter and Devon every year – and the other half to the entrant’s elected charity.
Entry is £17 for adults and £5 for under-18s. Included in the price is a place in the Santa Dash, a Santa costume, and a ticket for the Exeter City v Bury match.
Exeter City’s Youth Commercial Manager David Evans said: “We’re delighted to be hosting such an enjoyable and worthwhile event once again this year. It’s a great opportunity for people of Exeter, whether they’re football fans or not, to have a bit of fun while raising loads of cash for causes that mean something to them. It is a real spectacle to see hundreds of Santas running through the city centre and we’re hoping to get a record number of participants this year that take on the festive spirit and join us in the Dash.”
