Welcome to the Rotary Santa Run information page!


The Rotary Santa Run in Leiden in 2022 will take place on thursday 15 december from 17.00 – 21.30.

What is the Rotary Santa Run Leiden?
You walk with 1574 other Santas (men, women and children) a pleasant route through the historical heart of Leiden. Along the way you can enjoy for free all kinds of X-mas things. At the end you will receive a commemorative medal. We walk (so no running) for local Leiden charities.
SUBSCRIPTION includes a complete Santa outfit (yes, beard included), which you can COLLECT in mid-December.
The Rotary Santa Run Leiden is organised by Rotary Club Leiden.

In 2018 we collected € 14.000,- for four charities with 1000 walking Santa’s.
In 2019 we gave away € 20.000,- to three charities with 1260 Santa’s and lots of sponsors.
In 2021 due to Covid-19 there was no walk, but we did give €20.000,- to charity.

Helpful information on the evening itself:
Assembly and warming up from 17:00u at the skating rink (opp. City Hall).
