The Three Counties Running Club Santa Run Fun saw more than 100 participants don their red cloaks, hats, boots and beards to take on a 1K and 5K race.

Around £500 was raised for the club, who put on several events throughout the year including two other charity races in spring and autumn.

Gary Bligh, organiser, said: “It went really well, we had great weather and a good turn out of people. There were stalls, bouncy castles and all funds raised will go towards us holding more events like this in the community and sessions for children.

“It’s getting bigger each year, which is really promising to see.
