The streets of Dundee were a sea of red as hundreds of people turned out for this year’s Santa Dash in aid of the Archie Foundation.
More than 400 people dressed up as Father Christmas and took to the streets yesterday, walking, running or jogging a 2km or 4km route around the city centre.
Organiser Garry Smith, events and promotions officer for Leisure and Culture Dundee, said: “It has been absolutely amazing to see all of the Santas coming back to City Square for Leisure and Culture Dundee’s second charity Santa Dash.
“Everyone has really got into the spirit of the event and I can’t thank them enough for helping to raise much-needed funds for the Archie Foundation Tayside.
“It was a great sight to see them flooding the streets of Dundee in their bright red Santa Suits.
“I also have to say a huge thanks to our sponsors, Gillies, for all of their help, Xplore Dundee for providing free buses and to DC Thomson for all of the support provided by the Evening Telegraph and Wave FM.
“Thanks also go to all of the companies who provided our prizes, which was greatly appreciated by our winners, but the biggest thanks must go to each and every Santa, of all ages, who came along and took part in this wonderful event.
“We hope to see you all next year and Merry Christmas.”
Funds raised from the event will go towards the Archie Foundation Tayside Appeal’s target of raising £2 million for a new children’s operating theatre suite at Tayside Children’s Hospital.
