I think it's a administration charge.

Yes, having just checked the "enter online" section, it says "these prices include an online processing fee". Everyone take note - £12.50 entry fee by post - £14.50 online!!

There are two Santa events on the 2nd / 3rd December in Tatton Park and at Lancashire Cricket Ground if anyone from the Manchester / Cheshire area fancies joining in.

They are only one mile, and just cost £6 for adults so better for me taking the family.

I'm doing the Tatton Park one because you get free entry to the park as part of the entry fee and there's a lot going on that day. Check out www.medequip4kids.org.uk.
A great cause too.

My suit and info arrived today. You could probably fit me, a few reindeer and a sleigh in there with us, too.... it's going to be a funny one!

I'm travelling up from Croydon especially for this one as I have family in Liverpool.
My Uncle, (who did the Tunnel 10K in September with me) and my cousin are joining me for this and I will be aiming for a personal worst (my 5K time is 24:05). Something around the 40min mark should suffice!!
This looks like being a proper big giggle :)

got my santa suit today, anyone think it would be a good idea for next year to have blue santa suits aswell as red?! i just dont like the colour

Santa suit arrived this afternoon.

I am still waiting for my Santa suit to arrive, hopefully will get it in next few days?
Limping in Glossop, I have been trying to find the event at Tatton park that you mention. Is it Pip's Santa Dash? If so, it looks as though it has been cancelled! Which is a pity, I was hoping to get a bit more use from my santa suit..when it arrives.

hi are you all doing this race and if so are you doing it in fancy dress.
18/11/2006 at 16:46

19/11/2006 at 13:13

This is not a fancy dress run, everyone MUST dress as Santa to start the race. The suit is included in the entry fee. Last year some had customised their suit to stand out from the crowd.

6 of us doing it this year all but one has received the suit.

Hi Pineapple'd
Yes I just found out it was cancelled. Shame - my little girl was looking forward to it. I heard there is one being organised by RNIB (I think?) at Heaton Park but I don't know any more than that.

Enjoy whichever ones you do anyway.

This should be great fun. I got my suit today, there are 4 of us running on the 3rd, in my group. one got his suit on saturday, the others today. They are massive.

At last, my Santa outfit has arrived, so I can go to the race. My wife and daughter thought I looked hilarious with it on!

For your information "limping in glossop" the RNIB race in Heaton park is also on December 3rd, I am not that keen to do 2 runs in one day. The Liverpool one will probably finish me off with my santa shaped portable sauna suit.

What modifications do people make to their suits to try and stand out in the crowds? I guess 5,000 or so Santas will look pretty well the same? Any polite suggestions?

last year, few people made sledges with reindees attached. can't be more than 5 feet in length tho
21/11/2006 at 20:14
...and Elvis Santas, Little Britain Santas (Lou and Andy), Flashing Light Santas, Christmas Tree Santas and plenty of plain Santas.

Can you help us with our campaign? We are currently trying to put pressure on to the powers that be, to get a Marathon Event staged in Liverpool in 2008.

We have an online petition and are asking as many runners as possible to support the cause.

Thanks

Sign the petition now

Good idea toffee, I've been trawling the internet and ebay, and have yet to find a blue santa suit, (in colour that is, there have been quite a few "interesting" alternatives though!!!)

If anyone knows how to get hold of one, please let me know....

Am coming along to support at this one and am looking forward to seeing an array of fit slender running santas, although it may confuse my 2 young kids;-)
