Festive fundraisers have just one day left to sign up for Dundee’s first-ever Santa Dash.
More than 500 people have already agreed to take part in Sunday’s event, with entries closing today.
Emilia Brady, who is just 15 months old, took the participant count to 500 — with more signed up since.
And organisers hope the number will be even bigger when the deadline arrives.
Garry Smith, events and promotions officer for Leisure and Culture Dundee — which is organising the event in aid of the Archie Foundation — said: “We are now over the 500 mark.
“The more the merrier. They’ve got one more day to sign up and make what will be a great event as great as possible.
“The aim is to get as many people running through the streets as we can.”
Among those signing up for the event are groups from local companies including Thorntons Solicitors, Freedom Hairdressing, Grove Academy and a team of footballers from 2006 Dundee West Royals.
The 2km dash will start and finish at City Square, with the route to include the Murraygate, Meadowside, and Reform Street.
Organisers say the day promises to be full of family fun, with special prizes available for those who turn up with the best Christmas costume.
Santas taking part can also get free bus travel to the event courtesy of Xplore Dundee.
Proceeds from the event will go to the Archie Foundation, the official charity of Tayside Children’s Hospital, which is attempting to raise £2 million for a twin theatre operating suite at Ninewells.
Those looking to participate can still sign up online at leisureandculture dundee.com/santadash — or they can head along to Dundee Ice Arena, where they can secure their place and collect their suit at the same time.
Emma White, head of fundraising for the Archie Foundation, said: “It’s absolutely incredible that so many people have already signed up for the first-ever Dundee Santa Dash.
“We are really looking forward to seeing everyone in their Santa suits on Sunday, turning the city centre into a sea of red and white to raise money for the Archie Foundation.
“If you’re thinking about signing up, please do.
“It’s not too late to get involved and have some festive family fun while making the difference for local sick children in Tayside.”
The event starts at 10.30am.
