Join The Santa Stroll and support this year’s Christmas Appeal

With our Christmas now in full swing, Celtic FC Foundation are inviting supporters to join us for this year’s Santa Stroll and support our 2023 Christmas Appeal.

The Santa Stroll, which once again promises to be fun for all the family, will take place on the morning of Sunday, December 17, 2023 at Celtic Park.

Beginning at the top of The Celtic Way in front of the Brother Walfrid statue, participants will run/walk around the stadium footprint in a route which will encapsulate the circumference of Celtic Park.

To get everyone into the festive spirit, each participant will be provided with a Celtic Santa hat and Santa Stroll t-shirt and all participants will be welcomed into the stadium by Santa himself, as well as Hoopy the Huddle Hound both pre and post event.

There will be two opportunities to participate and support our 2023 Christmas Appeal, as follows:


  • Time – 9.00am
  • Details – Participants, under the age of 12, will walk/run two laps of the Celtic Park circumference, totalling one mile.
  • Registration – The cost for children to enter is £10 and the minimum fundraising target is £30. Or, a child can take part along with a parent/guardian, and the cost for the duo to enter is £20, with a minimum fundraising target of £50.



  • Time – 9.00am
  • Details – Participants, aged 12 and over, will walk/run six laps of the Celtic Park circumference, totalling five kilometres.
  • Registration – The cost to enter is £20 per person and the minimum fundraising target is £135 per person.


Please ensure you read the Terms and Conditions before completing the process. For both Strolls, please note that participants under the age of 18 must have written consent from their parent/guardian in advance of the event and must be accompanied to and from Celtic Park by a parent/guardian on the day.

Proceeds raised will support our 2023 Christmas Appeal which aims to bring comfort and light up the lives of many who would otherwise struggle over the festive period.

This includes local families facing poverty, so they can enjoy the type of Christmas that many of us take for granted.

As well as pensioners, women and children in refuge, the homeless community and refugees and a host of others experiencing hardship.

Together, we can Light Up Someone’s Christmas this festive season.
