Glasgow Santa Dash
Sunday 9 December 2018

In 2017 the annual 5k fun run saw around 8,000 people take to the streets in a Santa suit - all in the name of charity. The Santa Dash has raised more than £250,000 for various charities since it 'hit the streets' in 2006 and is now a firm favourite in the city's events calendar. This year our nominated charity is the Beatson Cancer Charity.
