Vision Australia’s Santa Fun Run

25th November @ 8:00 am - 12:00 pm AEDT

AUD4. – AUD75

Get ready to dash through the holiday season with Vision Australia’s Santa Fun Run. Join hundreds of Santas on November 25th at Melbourne’s Royal Botanical Gardens for a festive run, walk, jog or roll around 1 or 2 laps of the iconic Tan Track.

Don’t rush off after your race, stick around to support the other runners as they finish. The event village has plenty to enjoy such as post-race live entertainment, Carols singers, the AAMI cheer van, giveaways, a photo with Santa, face painters, sausage sizzle, presentations and so much more!

The Event Village will be located in the Pillars of Wisdom (Kings Domain) on Lawn 9, to the right of the Sidney Myer Music Bowl, where our flagship event Carols By Candlelight takes place each Christmas Eve.  

This family-friendly event raises funds for children’s services at Vision Australia contributing to the magical Carols by Candlelight event, helping kids who are blind or have low vision live the life they choose.
