Santa Dash 2016 is a 'World Title' holder again!
Photographs by Patrick Trollope.

WHAT an event. The 13th Liverpool Santa Dash, on 4 December 2016, has again won back the title from Las Vegas, in what is a very hard fought annual Festive Challenge. Now we can hold our heads up high as we are once again the "Biggest Festive Fun Run In The World..." This event, as always, was full of good humour. You could see people running with dogs dressed in fancy dress, also some runners themselves took part in swimming trunks and even Spiderman Costumes. Celebrities blended in against the massive tide of red and blue. This event was an amazing site to watch and for those taking part, we are told, it was just as amazing, if not more so.... The event raises funds for a host of local charities and this year was supported by Radio City and Blue Air. Following the main run, The Mini Dash, a 1K short run took place. This was extremely well attended as well. Both events had the real Farther Christmas at hand to set them off and to welcome the runners across the finish line.  To see more photos click on here.

A spokesman for BTR Liverpool told us:- "13 might be for sum an unlucky number, but we have had amazing luck. Fantastic weather and the biggest yet taking part in our annual challenge. We would like to thank all who have helped put on this amazing show and all the celebrities who have endorsed it, as well as taken part! We also would like to thank Liverpool City Council for their help, along with The Lord Mayor of Liverpool is Councillor Roz Gladden. Most of all, we have to thank not only the public and our sponsors, who have all taken part in what has been our best event yet! Without them we could not put on this amazing event and raise thousands and thousands of pounds for local charities."
