A short charity walk to help give Sheffield’s young people the future they deserve. The round walk starts at the entrance to the driveway of Whirlowbrook Hall, up Limb Valley and back down Ringinglow Road and Ecclesall Road South. The walk is just over 4.5 miles long, perfect to walk off a Sunday lunch, or to work up an appetite!
All entrants will receive their own Santa hat, we’ll be having a festive sing-along, and after the walk there will be complimentary mulled wine and mince pies!

Families are very welcome on the Santa Stroll, but an adult must accompany all children. There is no maximum age for our walk, however you must be sure that you are fit and healthy enough to complete the walk.
Well, we live in Sheffield so I’m afraid there is a hill at the beginning of the walk! However the scenery makes it all worth it and the rest of the Santa Stroll is downhill and flat.
As long as you have a basic level of fitness you should be able to walk the Santa Stroll. There will be fully qualified First Aiders on the walk to help with any unforeseen difficulties.
- How long will it take me?
We estimate that it will take about 2 hours.
Make sure you plan your route in advance! We would encourage people to arrive by bus. There are buses from Sheffield city centre, you can find out more here: http://www.travelsouthyorkshire.com/journeyplanning.aspx There is a bus stop on Ecclesall Road South adjacent Limb Lane – this is the best one for the Santa Stroll.
There is also plenty of on-street parking available just off Ecclesall Road South.
We meet at the driveway entrance to Whirlowbrook Hall.

Of course! Dogs must be kept on leads and under control. We reserve the right to ask any participant to remove their dog from the event if we feel they pose a threat to others taking part in the walk.
As the walk is in December, we recommend wrapping up warm as this is an outdoor event. We also recommend that you wear shoes/boots/welly’s that you don’t mind getting muddy, as the ground might not be dry.

Yes, we recommend that you bring an umbrella as the walk will still be going ahead!
