On Sunday, December 13, hundreds of Santa’s will run around the seafront to raise funds for Queenscourt Hospice in the annual Southport Santa Sprint.

The sprint will start at 11am from the Carousel on the Southport Pier Forecourt.

The event is fun and is suitable for all of the family to take part in, whether that is running or walking around the Pier and Promenade dressed us as Santa Claus.

Entry is £10 per adult, £7 for Under 16’s or £30 per family (two adults and two under 16’s) with Santa Suits and a special ‘Santa Sprint’ medal included in the fee. Every penny you raise in sponsorship for taking part will go directly to support the work of Queenscourt.

If you don’t want to take part in the running you can help by stewarding or turning up and showing your support to those taking part.

So make sure you go along and witness hundreds of Santa’s making their way along the Pier and Promenade.
