Last time we were over 1400 Santas and together we raised around 1/4 million SEK for charities and people in need.

Exciting news awaits! Stay tuned for the upcoming reveal of this year’s charity destination , where all the funds raised during the event will make a meaningful impact.
This year’s location will be announced very soon. How you finish the race is entirely up to you. If you want to run, jog or walk – the choice is yours! There is only one rule, we should have fun together.

Charity Run with Santa Theme

For the past 10 years, the association Together we make a change has organized the charity run Stockholm Santa Run. The event, organized entirely on a voluntary basis, involves all participants dressing up in Santa costumes and running/walking/jogging a 3 km, or 6 km, route in Stockholm’s city center.

All proceeds go directly to charity. From 2016 to 2019, when the event was held in Kungsträdgården, approximately 1500 people participated annually. We managed to raise nearly 1 million SEK, and the funds were distributed among organizations such as the Red Cross, the Activist Fund, the Childhood Cancer Foundation, Doctors Without Borders, and the City Mission.

The project has grown annually, becoming 10 times larger since its start in 2013. After the significant success of Stockholm Santa Run, we are more inspired than ever to take the next step and elevate the winter tradition with Santa to new heights in Sweden and Scandinavia.

Celebrating 10 Years of Joy, Community, and Winter Magic! 🎅🏃‍♂️🎉

In 2013, in the beautiful Tantolunden in the heart of Stockholm, a tradition was born that would spread warmth and laughter during the cold winter months. Now, ten years later, it’s time to celebrate this fantastic journey and revive the joy that Stockholm Santa Run has brought to all of us.

Over the past years, the pandemic has created a pause in our lives, including our beloved event. But now, it’s time to return to what we love most – running together, sharing laughter, and making a difference in our community.

Stockholm Santa Run is more than just a race; it’s an opportunity to remind ourselves of the importance of outdoor activities and unity during the winter months. Winter doesn’t have to be dull and gray; it can be filled with joy, color, and warmth when we come together in unity.

This year, we promise to make Stockholm Santa Run 2023 the most memorable experience ever. With red costumes and Christmas songs, we will together create a vibrant event in the midst of the darkest season.

Let’s make the 2023 Stockholm Santa Run a jubilee that we will remember forever!
