Sprinkle a dose of seasonal charity cheer by becoming a santa runner to raise money for East Anglia’s Children’s Hospices (EACH).
The event will take place as part of the March Christmas Market on Sunday December 6 and will see runners going through the town centre starting and finishing at Georges Bar and Restaurant.
There are two levels that runners can get involved in.
One is a 1.5km fun run which starts at 10.30am or for the more energetic there is a 5km run which starts at 11am.
The event has been organised by Georges and runners are encouraged to raise money for their favourite charity.
