Santa Dash 2020 deferred to 2021

IOM Bank to still support local charities

The streets of Douglas will be free of dashing Santas this year.

Isle of Man Bank has announced the 2020 Santa Dash has been cancelled due to, what's been described as, a "a number of factors out of its control".

It was due to be the 20th anniversary of the annual charity event this year, however, birthday celebrations are instead being deferred to 2021.

Though the fundraiser isn't going ahead, Isle of Man Bank will still support local charities by donating this year’s prize monies to five local organisations.
