Brighton Seafront


The Brighton Santa Dash is the most fun you can have in Brighton and it’s back for 2023. We would love to welcome you for more fun-filled frolics dressed as Santa Claus.

Christmas is coming so get in the spirit. Walk, jog or run – it’s up to you. We hope to see you on the start line for some festive fun. Ho Ho Ho


10:30am, 9th Dec 2023, Hove Lawns opposite Adelaide Crescent nr the Peace Statue

Go on then, how much is it?

It only costs £19 (+£1.60 handling fee) to enter and that includes your race entry, your Santa suit and your bespoke medal.

Is there anything else going on?

The Santa Dash is always great fun and amusing to see. It makes a great photo! Parents bring their children down to watch so we hold a kids 400m race before the main event at 10:20am. It’s free, just turn up and we give them all a medal at the end.

Virtual Run?

If you would like to run virtually rather than join us on the day, you can! Just enter by 8th December and pick up your suit from the Rockinghorse HQ, 13 Prince Albert St, Brighton, BN1 1HE


The Brighton Santa dash race route is a nice flat out and back run. The course heads west up the Seafront Esplanade for 2.5k. Once you get to Hove Lagoon you turn around and head back to the Start / Finish line.


As well as the portable toilets near the start line there are also four other toilet stop opportunities on the course at 200m,1.5k, 3.5k and 4.5km


There are no changing facilities so we recommend arriving at the event in your sports kit. You'll pick up your suit at the start.

Travelling to the Race

We urge everyone to walk, ride or take public transport to the race veune, but if that's not possible...


There are a number of NCP car parks within walking distance of the course. There are multi store car parks on West Street, Russell Square and Churchill Square. There is also hourly parking on the Kings Road (seafront road) itself.

Travel by train

Brighton train station is situated in the middle of town at the top of Queen's road. From the station the seafront and our Santa dash venue is about a 10 minute (15 minutes if you are carrying a sack of presents) down West Street and along towards Hove. Keep your eyes out for a sea of red hats!
