What is the Variety Santa Fun Run?

The Variety Santa Fun Run is a 5km fun run being held at the Waterfront City in Docklands, Melbourne.

You can run, walk, skip, hop, jump – finish it however you like, but just make sure you do it in your official Variety Santa suit. The suit is included in your registration fee so there can be no excuses for not getting into the Christmas spirit on the day!

You can enter as an individual, family, corporate team or with your friends and with the choice of a 4.2km run/walk, 8.4km run/walk, or 12.7km run, all ages and abilities can participate in this event.

Collecting your Santa suit?

Santa suits and entrant numbers will be available for collection from the Variety office at H71, 63-85 Turner Street Port Melbourne VIC 3207 between Monday 14th and Thursday 24th November, between 10am – 2pm ONLY after payment of registration has been received.

Alternatively, Santa suits and entrant numbers may be collected at the marshaling area at Waterfront City between 7 – 8.30 ONLY on the day of the race.

While the event will not be timed, participants are required to wear a race number and anyone not wearing a race number will not be allowed to take part in the fun run.

Children 2 – 10 will receive a Santa Hat on the day, and encourage anyone under 2 to dress in the Christmas spirit for the day.
(Children under 2 years of age are FREE but still need to register)
