Pictured, the run begins.Perth’s North Inch is set to look more like the North Pole on Saturday 12th December when hundreds of Santas will descend on the area for the most anticipated race of the winter period.

Father Christmases of all ages will make their way to the city centre to take part in the City of Perth Winter Festival Santa Run, a 5km event which will start at the Perth Concert Hall and finish at North Inch.

Those taking part will be able to enjoy all of Perth’s best loved sites running through Mill Street, Kinnoull Street, High Street and Tay Street before crossing Queen’s Bridge and continuing along Dundee Road, Gowrie Street and over Perth Bridge towards the finish line.

With just three weeks to go until the event the run has already seen over 350 entries with many more expected to flood in.

Nick Kydd, Race Organiser said: “The Santa Run is great fun and all the family can take part.

“It’s all very relaxed as runners can enter the race to raise money for a charity or just to have a bit of Christmassy fun.

“It really helps everyone, both locals from Perth and those visiting, to get in the Christmas spirit and it is quite a sight seeing over 500 people dressed as Santa running down the high street and across the bridges.

“It is a hugely popular event so I would encourage everyone to get their skates on and sign up to ensure they secure a place.”

Prices to enter are £12 for adults and £7 for children, included in these prices are the Santa suits which will be handed out on the day and can be kept.

After the event all those taking part will be given a medal and goody bag for their amazing efforts and are encouraged to stay in the area with many local businesses offering discounts to those coming to shop in their outfits.
