Santa will be putting his Christmas preparations on hold for a day in December – but don’t worry, because it’s all for a good cause.
The Hash House Harriers’ fourth annual Santa Dash sees Father Christmases from across the region come together for a day of fun and a race around Coate Water to raise money for Prospect. Last year around 100 people took part, raising almost £900 for the Hospice, and this year, the organisers are hoping to get over the £1000 mark.
The race, starting at 11am at Coate Water on Sunday 12 December, is split into either a 5k run or a 2.5k walk is open to Santas of all ages and abilities. You will, however, need to provide your own red suit.
It costs £6 for adults, £3 for children and OAPs, and £15 for a family. If you would like to take part, application forms are available from the Hash House Harriers website at www.nwh3.co.uk/Swindo%20Santa%20Dash%202010.htm where there is also a gallery of photos from previous years’ races.
