Elf Run

Elf Run is a charity event and its aim is to spread happy and christmassy atmosphere in Turku city centre. The event’s participation payments are donated to charity unshortened.

The Christmas Path includes different events held on four Saturdays before Christmas. On the 15th of December it’s time for Elf Run.

Elf Run is not a running competition. Its goal is to spread joy and relaxed atmosphere. We would like you to participate in a team for example with your family or work colleagues.

Remember that the most well dressed team will win a prize. It doesn’t matter whether you run, jog, dance or walk. The main thing is that you’re having fun. The route is 3 km long and it will take place in Turku city centre. The starting point and the finish line will be on Yliopistonkatu.

We will offer a goodie bag for the 100 fastest people to sign in.
