Shropshire Santa Run (5K)

December 23 @ 8:00 am 5:00 pm GMT

Hitch up your sleigh for Shropshire’s largest Santa Run and bring a flash of red to the streets of Oswestry with thousands of runners dressed as Santa Claus to spread festive fun and burn a few cheeky calories for the holidays.

The streets of Oswestry will transform into a festive course for everyone to enjoy from 11 years old up.

Run the course with your family and friends to burn away those mince pies.


Smithfield Street, Oswestry,
Shropshire, SY11 2EG

The event HQ & start/finish are a short walk from several car parks in the town centre.


  • Arrive in Oswestry: 8 am
