FATHER Christmases aplenty will be running around Penkridge next month as the village holds its first Santa Dash.
Penkridge and District Round Table is organising the event on December 2 in the centre of the village.
The half-mile run is open to anyone who is willing to dress as Father Christmas and all money raised from the event will go to charities around the area.
Santa suits can be bought for £5 from Penkridge and District Round Table and from the Sew Many Things shop in the village.
The organisation already holds a Father Christmas sleigh tour around the villages in the run-up to the festive season Mark Cooper, from Penkridge Round table, said: “The event is purely for fun, rather than being a competitive event.
“Unlike the popular village fun run we hold in June each year, there’ll be no timing and no race numbers. Instead spectators will see dozens of Santas sprinting through the streets of Penkridge.”
The village’s annual Victorian Christmas Fair will take place ahead of the dash on November 30. Between 5pm-9pm visitors can browse stalls selling crafts, food and gifts, enjoy a fun fair and meet Santa, as well as singing carols.
