Dig out your jingle bells and strap on your trainers – because Dorothy House has an epic adventure for you this festive season!

Those taking part will race around Bath this Christmas while tracking down Dorothy’s friends who are scattered across the city. The 10k route stops every 1k at QR checkpoints where you collect a character and interact, earning points all along the way!

Every participant will receive the top-secret route map and an elf hat that you can coordinate with your favourite festive outfit or candy cane striped Lycra! You can also get your hands on our exclusive ‘Get Elfie Hoodie’ if you can raise more than £200 on your online giving page!

The event is opened to anyone. Theres no elf too old or too young! The route spans across the striking City of Bath which you may want to enjoy on a solo tour, with a group of fellow elf buddies (as a socially distanced team*) or with your family. It’s a fabulous way to avoid the crowds while being in the great outdoors and taking in the festive season.

Elves are notoriously hard workers. They stop at nothing to make every Christmas exceptional. Dorothy House is counting on that dedication from our supporters to help us deliver Christmas for patients in our community this year. Your fundraising makes all the difference; help us this December to provide vital patient care.

Harnessing your desire to be fit and elfy, your natural elf-appeal and your big heart to spread Christmas cheer – dont miss this truly enchanted event! Sign up today and Get Elfie!
