Santa will be back in town supporting Rainbows this December! Actually, there will be hundreds of Santa’s in town as our annual Derby Santa Fun Run returns to Elvaston Castle.

Get into the festive spirit and join us for this fantastic family fun-run, which will see you don your Santa suits and spread the Christmas cheer as you take part in one of two routes - 2.2miles or 4.4miles – around the grounds of the castle and the country park (starting in the coach park), with both routes being wheelchair and pushchair accessible.

Whether you want to hop, skip, dance or run around the route you’re guaranteed to get into the Christmas spirit, spread joy and help raise funds for Rainbows. If that wasn’t enough reason to sign up, each participant will receive their very own Santa suit (under-3s are free but do not receive a suit) before they start the fun-run – turning Elvaston Castle into a sea of Santas; while you’ll also receive a finishers medal and goody bag once you’ve crossed the finish line.

And to get all the family involved, the event is also open to your ‘Santa Paws’, so bring your pooches along too*.

Santa suits come in 3 sizes - adult one size, child small (5-8 years) and child large (9-14 years)
