The Santa Run


How fast can Santa run?

All across Britain, they’re finding out. Because the UK has a network of Santa Dashes, all to raise money for worthy causes – thousands of santas in running shoes, en masse.

There are tall santas, short santas, female santas and male santas, human santas and – yes- even doggy santas.

The spectacle seems to be becoming a tradition across Britain, as runners in red and white, sporting false beards, raise much needed funds for charities, including the British Heart Foundation.

If you happen to be on our shores this Christmas, take a look at, to find your nearest one. Put some warm mulled wine in a flask and go to see one of the oddest festive celebrations the 21st century has to offer.
