Each participant will be sent an email including a fundraising pack and details on where they can collect their Santa costume with unique Santa Dash paper before the event.

The Chester Santa Dash event helps benefit two local charities – the Hospice of the Good Shepherd and the Countess of Chester Hospital Charity.

The Hospice of the Good Shepherd senior events fundraiser Stefan Robertson said: “Christmas is a special time of the year in Chester and there’s not a better event in the city to kick of the festivities. This year we’ve added some live music and surprises to enhance the experience for dashers.”
