Join our 1k Elf Dass through Dalkeith Country Park! It's the perfect way to run off some of the pre-Christmas excitement and get the younger members of the family running headfirst into Christmas.

1k Elf Dash at Dalkeith Country Park

About 1k Elf Dash at Dalkeith Country Park

This festive fun run is open to all, including babies in buggies, littler legs (age 11 and under) and all your four-legged friends. The 1k route is flat and accessible along a section of The Park’s King’s Drive.

Ramping up the fun factor on this family outing – we are giving prizes for the best festively dressed elf and most jolly looking dressed up dog.  So grab your Christmas cheer, put on your running shoes and come join us!

Elf Dash Tickets & Booking
The Elf Dash is being held on Sunday 17 December at 11.00, with registration open from 10.00. Please arrive in plenty time to register.

Child tickets are £5 and include an elf hat and medal.
Adult tickets are £5 and include a Santa suit (which the big man says you can keep!) and medal. If you don’t wish to run, but to cheer on your child from the side-lines, there is no need to buy an adult ticket.
Doggy participants do not need a ticket but must be kept on a lead during the race.
