Sunday 1st December and it the official kick start to Christmas with...
The 16th Liverpool Santa Dash!
Yeah, Christmas comes but once a year - and the BIGGEST FESTIVE FUN RUN IN THE UK gets the annual celebrations underway with an amazing visual feast on Santas dashing around Liverpool city centre.
It's a joyous sight as runners, joggers, walkers, young and old turn the streets into a mass of colour and excitement. And as you would expect in Liverpool there are even blue Santas!
The 5K course starts on the Liverpool waterfront in the shadow of the famous Liver Building and follows a route past many of the iconic landmarks in the city... the Royal Albert Dock, Liverpool ONE, Mathew Street... to finish in a noisy, crowd-filled snow flurry outside the Liverpool Town Hall.
Runners are greeted on the finish line by a cast of festive characters and once all the 5K runners are in, it's the turn of the kids in their very own 1K Mini Dash.
All the family can join in on this very special day and once the running is done then it's jingle all the way to Christmas.
Oh, and by the way... the medals are normally top quality but this year they are stunning!!
