Queenscourt Hospice Santa Sprint 2016
Photographs by Patrick Trollope.

ON Sunday, 11 December 2016, Southport Pier became a sea of red when hundreds of Santa?s turned out for the Queenscourt Hospice Santa Sprint. This is an annual dash around the tourist resort?s seafront's historic Pier and Promenade. All who took part got a special 'Santa Sprint' medal after completing the approximately 2km course. It was not just the dash taking place for the charity, but on the large as well, Santa's turned out on Stand Up Paddle Boards, as members of the SUP North waved on the runners above them, on the Pier, before doing a lap of the Marine Lake themselves. This might not be as big as some of the Santa Runs, but all who took part definitely seemed to have fun. This year?s Southport Santa Sprint was again sponsored by Silcock Leisure Group.

It's worth making a note that the Southport New Years Day event is also a family fun event, but this one is not for the faint hearted. Like the Sprint, it is also raising money for local charities, this time Southport Lifeboat. For more information about that event, visit:- TheFernley.Co.UK.
