Slipping into something jolly often helps to lift your mood. So what could get your family feeling more cheery than donning red costumes and fluffy cotton wool beards à la the merry man of Christmas himself?
To raise money for charity Children’s Hospices UK, fun runs are taking place across the country, with competitors invited to ditch tracksuits in favour of red Santa suits. Fun runs are open to adults and children alike, with walking and jogging permitted for the less fleet of foot.
Locations include Kendal, November 28, London Riverside, December 2, Bristol Harbourside, December 5 and Elvaston Castle, Derbyshire, December 12. See the Santas On The Run website for further details and dates.
