Chester Santa Dash 2011
Out and about in Chester today I was handed a flyer by two people in Santa hats, a little unusual for this time of year but little did I know what they were handing out flyers for, the Chester Santa Dash!
This is the first time that Chester has held a Santa Dash and what a great event for the city. The Liverpool Santa Dash has been a great success for many years and hopefully this new event can help create lots more sponsorship money for some very good charities as well as bring a little smile to the participants and spectators at the run.
The Speedy Santas are originally from Chester and it seems only fitting that we attend the fantastic Chester Santa Dash 2011 alongside the Liverpool Santa Dash 2011 that we participate in each year. With the Liverpool Santa Dash being on the 4th December and the Chester Santa Dash being on the 11th December, this should give the Speedy Santas plenty of time for recovery and to enjoy a few mince pies (and sherry) in preparation between the events.
The Chester Santa Dash is a festive family event open to all ages. Children ages 14 and under can enter the Santa Dash as long as they are accompanied by an adult. The Chester Santa Dash starts at 9:30am on Castle Drive, Chester.
