Once again it’s time to don your silly hats and big white beards to pound the streets of Liverpool.

Yes, this year’s Santa Dash is nearly upon us. This year, the organisers are hoping to get 8,000 entries to end our 08 year – if they do, it’s another record for our city (we did hold the 2005 record for the world’s biggest Santa Dash, so civic pride demands we do it again).

If dressing up like a fool and running around isn’t reason enough, there’s also a good cause for it all. Radio Merseyside Charitable Trust will be one of the charities to benefit from this year’s Santa Dash. The Trust raises funds in order to provide much needed sports, medical, educational, play and recreational equipment to all age groups. Awards are made every three months to the smaller community groups and charities in the Radio Station’s broadcasting area who struggle for funding against the larger higher profile charities.

Santa suits are included in the entrance fee of £15, so there’s no excuse not to toddle over to the Run Liverpool website and sign up.
