Great fun Seeing over 7000 Santa's running through Liverpool is a sight to behold! I was fortunate enough to get one of the limited blue suits which made it even more memorable. Great fun & fab atmosphere as you would expect. The course takes you through the city centre and no real challenges. A few 'inclines' but nothing major. Goody bags and medals were nice - even got a box of porridge :-)

The after race 're-hydration' was great as every cafe & pub was full of Santa's, many of which we're still in full costume well into the evening. I even managed to talk a couple of Santa's we met in Matthew Street into doing the Liverpool 1/2 in March!!

My only critisism is around the car parking. There was a flyer in the race pack giving details of a carpark for 'Santa's' on the Strand, but you couldn't get there as the roads were closed off. We managed to find some where close by (and cheaper) so no real problem.

Looking forward to next year.

7000+ santas running through Liverpool city centre Fantastic event. Definately a highlight of the year and a great way to end a running year. Not sure how people can complain about the price. If you think its too much don't enter it! How can a santa suit, T-shirt, quality medal, 2(!) goodybags, a run through a major city, a great day and any money left going to charity not be worth 20 quid! anyway rant over, great day out and will definatly be doing it again.

Needs better organisation I signed up for this with my godsons to begin the countdown to Christmas. I missed the 5K because none of the stewards seemed able to point us in the direction of the santa suit collection point and the map enclosed with the race pack was useless. We found them just as the van was about to pull off otherwise there would have been 2 very unhappy kids. The race itself was great fun, good crowds and a great start to the festive season for the children. But for those of us from out of the area printing information in the Liverpool Echo is no use. Better information next time would be helpful but would definately run it again.

Nice little run and good atmosphere from the runners not the organisers! £21 is way too steep for this short and easy race

Festive Friendly Fun! This is one for every member of the family from toddlers to Grannies to the pet dog. Fabulous festive atmosphere and a good chuckle to run with thousands of other loonies all dressed up like Santa Claus on a Sunday morning! I spent the first mile laughing at the absurdity of 8000 grown ups runing about looking like Father Christmas. Kids love the Mini-dash and feel like they are really taking part in the event.

Great fun all round and I'll be back in 2010 without a doubt.
