The Strathcarron Santa Dash will go ahead on Saturday, December 5 at Callendar Park in Falkirk.

The 5km route is open to adults, kids and dogs and the entry fee includes a Santa Claus suit to wear on the run.

Fundraiser with Strathcarron Coleena Brodie said: “The Santa Dash is a fun way to raise money.

“You don’t need to be a serious runner, you can sprint, jog, walk or crawl the course and it’s just a bit of fun.

“Seeing hundreds of Santas running around Callendar Park is quite a sight - I recommend coming along, even just to watch.”

Entry costs £10 for adults and £3 for children and a family ticket for two adults and up to four children is £25.

You can register before the event at the Strathcarron website or by calling (01324) 826222.

Places will also be available on the day and the race starts at 11am.

Strathcarron Hospice is also launching the Light Up a Life fundraiser for Christmas.

People can sponsor a virtual star on the Strathcarron Hospice website or sponsor a light on a Christmas tree in Falkirk’s Howgate shopping centre. The suggested donation is £5 per light and you can sponsor as many as you like.
