Charity Runs

One of the most common ways to get involved with a charity is to join one of the many charity runs taking place throughout the year. Here at The Prince of Wales Hospice we host a number of different charity runs, whether you are looking for a charity fun run, or a marathon we can help you to get involved.

Santa Dash

Our Santa dash is just one of the charity runs we take part in, hosted by the hospice you will walk, jog or run around the 2.5 mile course in Pontefract centre.

Your entry fee covers your Santa suit, so you and your family can complete the charity run looking fully festive.

To join our Santa Dash please ensure you register before the 2nd December. There will be a Christmas mini market selling merchandise, cards and hot drinks for you to enjoy at the end of the charity run.

If you are looking to get involved with a charity run before Christmas, whether that’s with family friends or colleagues there is no better event that the Prince of Wales Santa Dash. As 7 out of 10 of our patients are cared for by your donations your entry and sponsorship will make a real difference to your local charity.

The Great North Run

If the Santa dash isn’t long enough, and you want to challenge yourself on one of the UKs biggest charity runs, then we have places for fundraisers available on the Great North Run.

To take part in the great north charity run, then there are a few things you need to know.

  • A deposit of £71 is required to retain your place
  • We ask you to raise a minimum of £350 for the Prince of Wales Hospice

In return you will receive

  • A running vest, tips sheet and sponsor form upon registration 
  • A brief training plan to aid you in preparing for the event
  • Access to the charity village on the day so you can get some free food and a massge
  • Recognition in local press

Please get in contact if you are interested in getting involved and raising funds for the Prince of Wales Hospice as there are limited places for the hospice team.

These aren’t the only charity runs we get involved in and so aren’t the only ways you can raise money for the hospice. If you are participating in any charity running event whether it is a fancy dress dash or a gruelling marathon get in touch and we will give you everything you need to raise funds to support our patients and their families.
