Hundreds of Santas to race in Ryde

Hundreds of Santas to race in Ryde

What better way to kick off the month of December than with a Santa fun run along Ryde's Esplanade raising money for a worth cause? 

Last year, more than 200 runners dressed as Old Saint Nick raced to keep themselves warm over the 5km seafront course to fund the work of the Earl Mountbatten Hospice, which provides care to patients with life-limiting conditions and their families. 

Donning a big beard helps to keep out the chill of the sea breeze, plus you'll be rewarded for your efforts with homemade mince pies at the finish line. You even get to keep your Santa costume to use on Christmas Eve. 

If you want to take part and are going to head over on the Sunday from the mainland, you'll need to catch an early ferry as the race starts at 10am.
