Dashing through the…city

Admittedly running is not my favourite pastime.  I do it – reluctantly – to offset my cake obsession.

So, on Sunday 9 December, together with 2400 others, I’ll be taking part in the 5K ‘Santa Dash’.

And ho, ho, hold on there.  You can too!  Why, because frankly why wouldn’t you?   Even if, like me, you mostly detest running, there’s something quite appealing about dashing through the city-centre with a mass of other jovial red-suited folk.

Entry is only £15 (adults) and a fiver for the kids.  And yes, the Santa suit is included.  Bonus – especially as tis the season to be jolly. And what does Santa love even more than sweets and dashing through the…city?  Skating of course.   So, after the run have a free whirl on the ice rink in George Square.

Get on the nice list

Do it for charity, do it for the Christmas cheer or do it so you can happily indulge in an abundance of guilt-free sugar plums over the festive season.  And enjoy!

See you at the finish line for cake.
