National Santa Dash
8 December from 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
FOR ALL, TARGETED, COMPETITIVE
All of our events will follow our new event themes; For All, Targeted & Competitive. These themes have been designed to ensure we provide events to benefit all young people.
FOR ALL– These events are for everyone and are delivered in school. They focus on providing 60 active mins for every child whilst supporting their physical, social and emotional wellbeing.
TARGETED– These events target specific groups of young people who would benefit the most from having positive experiences of sport, physical activity and competition. The activities and outcomes are designed to reflect the young people’s needs and motivations.
COMPETITIVE– These events are for pupils who are ready and prepared for competition and enjoy performing and competing against others. They provide the opportunity for competition in a positive and friendly environment where the focus is on enjoyment and supporting the wider development of young people as much as the outcome of the event itself.
This is a FOR ALL event open to all children but with the focus being to increase motivation and promote enjoyment for those least active children within your school.
Schools across the country are coming together on Friday 8th December 2023 to deliver a Christmas Santa Dash.
There is no prescribed distance, it’s up to individual schools to choose their own course, distance or length of time running/walking. The emphasis is about physical activity for all children in your school while spreading some Christmas cheer! This can be linked with Christmas Jumper Day or any other related fundraising.
