In short: Great first race, great fun, will be back next year! In full: Could have done with a proper start and finish line, but great atmosphere, great fun, will be back next year!!!! Date of review: December 3, 2006
In short: A great way to get into Christmas Mode! In full: A thoroughly wonderful fun event. The course and the costume added to the challenge (I would normally run half M's faster than this)with a few little hills and a strong wind against you. See you next year. Date of review: December 3, 2006
In short: christmas fun! In full: would probably do it again, travelled all the way from Bradford, but would probably plan not to be seven months pregnant next time. Couldn't see those promised toilets. Maybe they were obscured by the Santa's, well done everyone for making the Santa effort! Date of review: December 3, 2006
In short: Fantastic In full: What an event. Enjoyed every minute of it. Thousands of Santa's having fun and raising money, what more could you want on a cold December morning. Great medal, t-shirt and goody bag. Ran it on my own but the atmosphere was still fantastic. Will be back next year and will get friends and family to join in rather than stand and watch.

In short: Chill Out! It’s a fun event! In full: Did the run today with my nephew; a nice leisurely stroll, soaking up the brilliant atmosphere. Weather was great, which helped.
To add to the points already well made, this is a fun event not a PB potential ‘race’, the only time this becomes dangerous is when people are not in the spirit of the event and start legging it around, scattering people in their wake, and causing possible danger for other runners.
The only criticisms, were the lack of music (how hard would it be to put on a xmas cd?!) and the PA was poor, people couldn’t hear anything at the back, the fiasco at the end meant that some people were getting loads of bags and t-shirts, it was basically a free for all, I just hope that the slower finishers got something if there was anything left. Great medal, good t-shirt and a fine goody bag.
But regardless, will be back next year as it is one of the best charity events of the year, lets hope Vegas doesn’t take our record!
In short: Excellent fun run! In full: Excellent morning run very very enjoyable a right giggle, but why were so many serious runners not wearing a proper santa suit including the guy who won. Why why why can't everyone understand the spirit of a fun run its not a race, it's a Santa Dash. Date of review: December 3, 2006
In short: Brilliant In full: Travelled on a coach with my running club from the midlands, as soon as we got in to Liverpool could see Santas everywhere!! It was a brilliant race with a fantastic atmosphere and excellent goodies at the end. Yes there were a fair amount of walkers but I'm not complaining and I don't see why people should. It's supposed to be a fun event for charity, surely no one can expect it to be a "serious" race dressed in a Santa Suit? :-) Date of review: December 3, 2006
In short: excellent charity event in the city centre In full: Really good occasion for good causes, only time you will get away with running in a santa suit through town! only criticism would be that it could have been easier to run on the way back without having to dodge other runners, more from a safety point of view than about losing time...

In short: Could have been better organised, couldn't see the start or finish. Too many people walking...thats fine but maybe they could be asked to stay to one side. gorgeous views of the river. I love Liverpool Date of review: December 3, 2006
