On November 25 Santa’s Dash will be taking place in Lancaster city centre. The race takes place in order to raise money for the local charity CancerCare, a charity that offers free care to over 1500 people in the local area. CancerCare is dedicated to providing free of charge, supportive care people in Lancaster each year who are facing cancer, whether as patients, carers or family members.
The dash will set off at 6pm, and has been assigned specifically to this date, to coincide with the lighting of the tree in Market Square. The short, flat route from Salt Ayre Sports Centre, along the traffic-free riverside path into the city is suitable for all ages and abilities and is fully accessible for wheelchairs and pushchairs so anyone who cares to don a Santa suit.
