Santa Run 2023

Event Details

  • Categories:

The 30th annual “Santa Run” will take place on Saturday, December 9th starting at dusk (5ish). Presented by the Sooke Firefighter’s Association and IAFF Local 4841, the annual Santa Run is a well-loved holiday tradition in Sooke. Thanks to the collaborative efforts of firefighters and the community, much-needed donations are collected in support of the Sooke Christmas Bureau and local families in need.

Fundraising goal: $30,000

Decorated with bright and colourful Christmas lights and playing festive holiday music, four trucks loaded with Santa and helpers will be driving through neighbourhoods to spread holiday cheer.

How to participate:

  • Make a donation online, at any time.
  • Check out the four routes and determine the closest location to you. All routes will have a Claus Pit Stop along them. Teams will be stopping at these stations for ~5 MINUTES at the designated times (displayed on the map), to greet families in the area, take photos and collect donations (cash or food).
    • NOTE: New for 2023! The Blue Route will start from Fire Hall No. 1, changing the overall direction of the route. This will allow Blue to hit the greatest number of families at the beginning of the event.
  • Listen for the music and look for the firetruck sirens and lights.
  • Step outside, wave, cheer, and sing a carol as “Santa” drives by or gather at a Claus Pit Stop, meet your neighbours and enjoy the sights and sounds of this Sooke holiday tradition!
