After last year’s success Teesside Hospice’s Santa Run in association with Middlesbrough Council is back - bigger and better!

This year’s festive run will be held on Sunday 6th March around Centre Square in Middlesbrough - the event had originally been scheduled to take place on 5th December 2010 but had to be postponed due to heavy snow.

The 3k sponsored fun run will see Santa’s competing on a course circling Centre Square. All participating Santa’s have paid a £10 registration fee which entitles them to a Santa Suit, mince pie and hot drink and have been asked to raise sponsorship for Teesside Hospice to help local people with life limiting illnesses. The race is open to Santa’s 11 years old or over but children aged 16 and under must be accompanied by an adult.

Runners will be registering from 10.30am with the race beginning at 11.30am.

Middlesbrough’s Deputy Mayor Dave Budd said: “Centre Square is the place to come to for fun and entertainment and the Santa Run looks set to become a regular fixture.

“Middlesbrough is developing a reputation as the region’s home of running events, and this is a welcome addition.

“I’m sure there will be a great turn-out, and that the Santa Run will raise much-needed funds for a very worthwhile cause.”

If you’d like to take part in this fun run there is still time, runners can sign up on the day by coming to Centre Square from 10.30am.
