FESTIVE folk are urged to suit up for a Santa run.

The one-mile dash around McArthurGlen East Midlands Designer Outlet at 9am on Sunday December 18 will boost Bluebell Wood Children’s Hospice - the only children’s hospice covering Derbyshire.

Hospice chief executive Sarah Champion said: “Santas on the Run is a fun and healthy way to spend time full of love and laughter with friends and family at Christmas.

“Everyone at Bluebell Wood is excited to be taking part and cannot wait to pull on their Santa outfits. Plus, with all the running it’s a great excuse to tuck into more mince pies!”

Registration is £10 per adult and £5 per child and this includes a Santa outfit.

The warm up to favourite Christmas carols begins at 8.30am and the run at 9am. The run is just over a mile and will take no more than an hour to complete.

Treats will also be in store for runners on the day.
