The more Santa’s the merrier!

Don your finest festive attire and join the 2,000 costumed participants as they run, walk, hop or dance the 3-kilometer route through the festively lit city center.

The SantaRun Haarlem has become one of the largest in the Netherlands. The goal is to have a festive evening, not necessarily to get the best time. Participants, friends, sponsors, and partners of SantaRun Haarlem raise money for charity, with the theme ‘children’. This year’s three charities are WeekendAcademie, KinderUniversiteit Haarlem and Stichting Hidup Baru.

New this year is the ELFS RUN! In this sponsored run, as many kids as possible take a trip around the church. The children can be sponsored by family members, neighbors, friends or teachers. By participating in this they also support the charity.

Do you want to join your company? There are many opportunities to sponsor and support the event. If you become a friend, sponsor or partner of SantaRun, you will receive starting tickets, Santa suits, consumption vouchers and of course the necessary attention in the run-up to and at the event.

So get ready for a big winter party on the Grote Markt on December 13th! The ELFS RUN will start at 6 pm, followed by a warm-up for all Santa’s, reindeer and Christmas angels, after which the starting signal will follow. Upon your return, a festive after-party awaits you. This year you also have the opportunity to get a snack at one of the food trucks on the Grote Markt!

You can find more information about the program, registration, the ELFS RUN, the charities and opportunities for companies on the website www.santarunhaarlem.nl . You can also follow SantaRun Haarlem on Facebook and Instagram.

When: Friday, December 13th at 19:30

Where: Gathering from 18.45 on the Grote Markt
