Run as Santa all in a good Claus for charity partner Acorns

Get your festive season off to a running start at the Acorns 'Santas on the Run' fun event.

Acorns are appealing for festive claret and blue fanatics to pull on a Santa suit and get together with fellow supporters, friends, colleagues and family to join in the run, raising money for life-limited children.

The event is bringing in the festive spirit on Saturday December 8 and Sunday December 9, when sleigh loads of jolly joggers descend on Brindleyplace and Walsall Arboretum.

Hundreds will pull on a Santa suit to take part in either a 2km Santa Stroll or 5km Santa Run to show their support for local children.

Philippa Gay, major events officer at Acorns, said: "This special event brings laughter, fun and festive cheer to the streets of Birmingham, while raising vital funds to support local life-limited children.

"It's not every day one gets the chance to be part of a massive Santa parade!

"It's going to have a crackin' Christmas atmosphere and we're calling on everyone to show their support."

Entry is £10 for adults and £5 for U16s and includes a Santa suit.

Due to size restrictions U6s cannot be given a Santa suit - but they are welcome to join in and wear their own fancy dress!

The two new routes for 2012 are wheelchair and buggy friendly.

Visit or call 0844 984 0405 for more information or to register.
