You better not shout, you better not cry as Santa and Rudolph smashed it at Lydiard Park at the weekend. And we've got more than a hundred pictures for you to feast your eyes on of the whole shebang!

Swindon’s most loved winter fun runs were brought together on Sunday to create one big event at Lydiard Park.

The Christmas themed Santa vs Rudolph run raised money for Brighter Futures and the Swindon Phoenix Rotary Club, and involved hundreds of people dressed as either Santa or Rudolph.

There was a choice of 3k, 5k or 10k routes, which participants were able to run, jog or walk chasing the carrot. It was open to all ages and was suitable for dogs and pushchairs.

Depending on your team, runners were able to wear a Santa hat or reindeer antlers.

Fancy dress was optional, but was highly recommended.

All money raised was split between Brighter Futures and the Swindon Phoenix Rotary Club, who will be donating their share of the fundraising to Wiltshire Air Ambulance.
