Welcome to the Rotary Santa Run information page!

Unfortunately because of Covid-19 there will not be a walk full with Santa’s like in 2018 & 2019.
We do like to collect money to give to charity. In 2020 we have chosen, De Voedselbank Leiden, the food bank Leiden.
We feel that everybody should have food especially with the holidays. Will you help us?
Please donate to Stichting Community Service Rotary Club Leiden, IBAN NL46FVLB0227146611 BIC FVLBNL22.

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 de Burcht.

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.

Helpful information on the evening itself:
Assembly and warming up from 17:00u at the skating rink (opp. City Hall).
At six o’clock it’s Ho-Ho-Go for a sea of Santas!
Bring cash money. If needed you can buy a poncho for € 2,- on the Koornbrug.
Or some nice presents, food or drinks at the floating Christmas market.
