The 2019 Shanks Skye Santa Dash is this Saturday, 14th December, and promises to get you in the festive mood and get a bit of exercise. The day also aims to raise a significant amount for local Charities.
This year you have the option to purchase a Santa Suit on entry or come in your own Fancy Dress Costume. You can get creative as an individual or team, with the option to strut your stuff on the cat walk and try out for the team or individual Fancy Dress prize. Fancy Dress must be festively themed and safe to run in!
If you'd like a suit, please get your entries in asap as stocks of adults Santa Suits are running low. You can enter online by midnight Thursday 12th December at https://register.primoevents.com/ps/event/SkyeSantaDash or at registration, but it will be more expensive than online and Santa Suits may have sold out, so you will need to have a Fancy Dress plan B.
Registration will be at the Fingal Centre 4-7pm Friday 13th and 9-11.45am Saturday 14th, suits will be available for collection as part of registration. Please note-Children 8 and under, must be accomopanied by an adult
