The 1st Caterham Santa Run took place on 13th December 2009 in Queen’s Park, Caterham to raise funds for St Catherine’s Hospice. With the closure of Marie Curie Cancer Care Hospice in Harestone Valley Road in Caterham in March 2009, St Catherine’s Hospice became the local provider of end of life care for people with incurable illnesses in the Tandridge area. As all of there services are provided free of charge, funds are needed to continue providing their specialised care.

Nearly 80 men, women and children dressed as Santa suits, some with dogs dressed for the occasion as well, covered the 3k run around the park. All participants were given a medal for competing in the race, with drinks and mince pies enjoyed by all, after the race.
