Sign up for Santa fun run

HUNDREDS of Santas are expected at a popular charity run.

Runners will line up for Durham County Council’s Santa Fun Run.

The run takes place at Hardwick Country Park, Sedgefield, on Sunday, December 4 from 10.30am. All money raised will go towards Butterwick Hospice.

More than 260 runners attended last year’s event, decked out in reindeer antlers and Santa beards.

Beryl Anderson, events officer at Durham County Council, said: “Entrants can run, walk or simply stroll through the grounds.”

Entry for adults costs £10 which includes a full Santa suit. Under 15s will be charged £5 which includes a Santa hat, medal and a certificate.
