Thousands of Santas run in Liverpool's Santa Dash 2008
IT was a dry
but freezing cold Sunday morning on 7 December 2008, with the
temperature below zero, it was hard to picture many turning up for
this year's Santa Dash in the European Capital Of Culture 08,
Liverpool. Amazingly, they did; several thousand of them and some
came from as far away as New Zealand... The event was started to the
Sounds of Liverpool's Samba Schools Drums... Then as the runners
shot around the course, the band got in place at the finish... At
the Finish line runners where watched by the Lord Mayor of Liverpool
and race MC, Alan Jackson of BBC Radio Merseyside kept the
spectators entertained. The event was a huge success and it raised
lots of cash for many charities. That made the day even more
interesting was not only did normal passengers on Mersey Travel's
Trains got charged £1.00 for a ticket to travel in to Liverpool, but
all the runners using Mersey Travel's trains travelled for FREE!
We will let the photos our editor took at the event tell you the
rest of the story. To see our photographic coverage
here. Well done to all who
organised this and to the thousands who took part...
