You gotta Stroll with it...

The countdown is now officially on to City’s annual Santa Stroll!
Now in its fourth year, the festive fun for all the family is set to be even bigger, longer and Bluer than ever before.
On Sunday 8 December, thousands of City fans will don their Sky Blue Santa suits and possibly brave the Manchester weather to raise money to support City in the Community programs and initiatives across the local area.
With a ho-ho-host of entertainment, activities and competitions for you to get involved in, it’s set to be the best Santa Stroll yet.
For the first time ever, the 5k route involves entering the Etihad Stadium and strolling around the hallowed turf pitch-side.
We’ve also included a Santa Dash for speedy Blues fans who want to race and reckon they are faster than Rudolf the reindeer.
Before the main event, entertainment in City Square will be provided compliments of The Rainband, Guitarthur singing city Christmas songs, magicians, freestylers, Moonbeam and Moonchester will also be on hand to get everyone in the festive spirit.
We also have a very special guest all the way from the North Pole in Santa’s grotto, along with his reindeers.
Tickets, which include your Sky Blue suit, cost just £5 for children and £10 for adults.
Why not make it a family affair and save £5 with our family pack that includes two adults and two children’s suits for just £25.
Tickets and information on when and where to collect your suits are available at www.mcfc.co.uk/santastroll.
If you can’t make it on the day, but still want to support the great work being done, fear not. Please visit the Just Giving page to donate here.
The running order for the stroll is as follows:
09:30am Activities Open
11:00am Starting Pens Full
11.15am Warm Up
11:30am Santa Dash Starts
11:35am Santa Stroll Starts

Car parking is free in the North Car Park and the kids will receive a free goodie-bag and certificate when they cross the finish line.
Let’s make it a Stroll to remember this Christmas.
