Suit Up For The Santa Dash!

The Santa Dash hopefuls last year

Yes, it's that time of year again, when all the amateur Santas of the world gear up for a race to determine who can deliver presents fastest. In Helensburgh, the Santas are running to support the RNLI on December 5, hopefully bringing the charity a festive boost ahead of Christmas.

The Round Table Helensburgh Santa Dash is joined this year by an exciting Santa Claus Zumba warm-up starting at 9.45, while the actual race begins at 10.00 in Colquhoun Square. There are two courses available to run this year, a 5K, for the more serious Santa, and a 2K for those bringing their little elves along with them, both of which pass by the waterfront.

Each participant will be supplied with a Santa suit (which they can keep) and finishers will receive a medal and goody bag for completing the dash. Santas wishing to enter can do so through the dash's website.

Good luck to all those participating, and let's hope they make a great Christmas contribution to the RNLI!
