Running Santas

Posted: December 19, 2007 in running

 On December 9th, Santas from all over UK took a break from their busy Christmas activities to see who is the fastest Santa

According to BBC.com, the race took place at Newtown, Wales, around 400 Santas turned the sleepy market side town red to slug it out for the bragging rights of the fastest Santa in UK

 
The santas ran a four-and-a-half-mile course.
The Santa Run raises around £150,000 for charity with half of the proceeds going to Dial-a-Ride and the other half to a charity of the Santa’s choice.

A team from Surrey won the best dressed Santa competition and the overall winner of the race was a man from South Wales.

He completed the course in around 22 minutes which takes some doing when you are wearing a beard and dressed as santa.

Ho! Ho! Ho!
