Be A Clause for A Cause!

Santa Fun Run all wrapped up with a bow on top!

It was a flurry of fluffy beards, a mingling of merriment, a Santa showdown-if you will, as the Sunday Territorian Santa Fun Run decorated the Darwin Waterfront on Sunday 24th November. A record 683 Santa’s got very jolly (and sweaty!) as they made their way around the 2km route, it was a beautiful sight to see.  Revelers did a fantastic job raising a whopping $11,000 for Variety NT Starfish Swim Group!

Thanks to all of our sponsors, supporters, Jolly Vollies and Santas who came and joined in the fun!  Let’s see if we can get even more Jolly Joggers next year!



Easy 2km course route. Gather a team & fundraise to win great prizes!
