The event kick-starts the festive season as hundreds of ‘dashers’ suit-up as Father Christmas for a 3.3km jog, walk or stroll around Chester city centre.
Now in its seventh annual year the event promises to be bigger and better than ever before with live music being performed along the route and a few surprises thrown in for good measure.
Registration is now open for the popular fundraising event which supports the Hospice of the Good Shepherd and the Countess of Chester Hospital charity.
Ward manager at The Hospice of the Good Shepherd Debbie Evans is hoping to see lots of Santa Clauses coming to town.
She said: “The Chester Santa Dash is a fantastic family friendly event and the atmosphere last year was brilliant.
“We were so pleased to see so many families coming together to raise money for their local charities.
“A group of nurses from the hospice have already signed up again this year and we hope you will join us and help make this the best year yet!”
Entry is £16 and includes a Santa suit and an exclusive medal.
Under fives are free and although they cannot be given a Santa suit due to size restrictions, they can attend in their own festive fancy dress.
