Hundreds of people have signed up to take part in Stamford’s Santa Fun Run to raise money for charity but organisers are pushing to get 1,000 runners for the big day.
So far there are more than 350 entries for the fun run at Burghley Park on December 15, starting at 11am, including 46 teams.
The Stamford Santa Fun Run is organised by Burghley Rotary and is into its sixth year. Since its inception the event has raised more than £100,000 for local charities and groups.
President Chris Tily said: “I am delighted that Santas are signing up in droves. Come and join us it’s not a serious race, more like a gentle amble.”
