The Santa Run in Lichfield

A Christmas treat is coming to Lichfield with the Santa Run event returning to the city.

The annual run is organised by KP Events and sees families donning their beards and Santa suits for a dash around Stowe Fields.

The 2.5km Santa Run starts at 10.30am on December 11.

A spokesperson for KP Events said: “It is very much about the taking part and dressing up in the costumes which are provided.

“Running through the city on the same day as the popular Festive Food market also adds to the festive fun.”

This year’s event will raise money for MACS, a charity which supports young people born without or with underdeveloped eyes.

Online entry is £10.95 for adults, £7.95 for children aged 12 or under. Family entry fees are also available, although larger families can email to register. Admission includes a Santa suit and a Christmas pudding for every runner.
