4th Santa Run


Athens’s annual Santa Run is coming to town for the fourth consecutive year and will take place in Athens’s southern suburb of Glyfada on December 16, 2017 at 11 am promising young and old looking to enjoy the festive fun an amazing experience!

This year’s Santa Run – starting and finishing at Glyfada Holmes Place Club – promises to fill our hearts with Christmas joy as hundreds of Santas from all over Athens take on a 2.5km race at the city center of Glyfada; a beautiful Athens suburb close to the city’s waterfront and only half an hour away from Athens city center on public transport (metro and/or bus).

As the spirit of the event is taking part not winning or competing, participants can run, jog or simply walk along the route. However, as no Santa Run is complete without the outfit, participants can receive a Santa suit along with a hat and beard at registration, available at any Holmes Place Club Reception located in Athens (City Link Shopping Centre, 1st floor, 4 Stadiou and Voukourestiou St, 105 64, Athens), Glyfada (83 Grigoriou Labraki St, 166 75, Glyfada) or Marousi (Ethrion Shopping Center, 40 Agiou Konstantinou St., 151 24, Marousi).

All funds raised from the 2017 Athens Santa Run will go to this year’s nominated charity, namely non for profit organization “Charity4U” aiming to help young promising athletes fulfill their dream of participating in an international athletics event representing their country.

This year’s Santa Run is co organized by Holmes Place and Communication Lab and is under the auspices of the Municipality of Glyfada.
