New Festive Race For Linlithgow
Santa Claus is coming to town...
Christmas is coming to Linlithgow this year with news that there will be a brand new Santa Dash for the West Lothian town for 2023 with the festive fun kicking off on 25 November at 4.05pm.
The town, ideally situated between Edinburgh and Glasgow is always a hive of activity but especially so as thoughts turn towards the visit of the actual Santa who (assuming everyone has been behaving themselves) will descend upon the town exactly one month later. Rumours abound that the actual Santa will be hidden amongst entrants in a sort of dry run for the real thing. runABC Scotland has been unable to confirm the voracity of these claims at the time of writing!
Organised by the same team behind the highly successful Linlithgow 10K, the new event organisers told us: "Please come and join us on Saturday 25th November 2023 at 4:05pm, before the Linlithgow Advent Fayre, for this fun, charity, 3K event. You’ll be running up and down the iconic Linlithgow High Street, which will be closed to traffic for the event, in your finest festive lycra.
Tickets are available at Entry Central and cost £5 each with all proceeds, after costs, being donated to MacMillan Cancer Charity. The race is limited to 250 entrants and is open to individuals aged 15 and above.
There will also be prizes for the first three male and female runners in the form of cash to donate to their chosen charity.
All we ask is that you dress festively, ideally as Santa, to make this a pre-Christmas spectacular!
