Blue Santas

Manchester City fans are in for a treat on December 5, when the club will be holding a santa stroll as part of a christmas family fun day. Participants will be able to walk the 4km course in limited edition sky blue santa suits.

Kicking off at 12pm, the santa stroll will begin at the Regional Athletics Arena, taking in the spiral walkways of the City of Manchester Stadium The walk will finish in City Square, where there will be an ice rink and reindeer sleigh, as well as fun football activities, face painting and entertainers.

Entry costs £15/12 and all entrants will receive a light blue santa suit, race number, medal and goody bag. All money raised from the event will go towards City In The Community (CITC) Giving, which supports five main charities- Guide Dogs for the Blind, Royal Manchester Children's Hospital, St. Ann's Hospice, CITC and the Children's Adventure Farm Trust. Each of the charities will be represented at the event, so 'strollers' can find out how their donations are being used.

Entries can be made online and santa suits will be available from CityStore from December 1, allowing fans the chance to wear them to the matches in the week leading up to the santa stroll.
