On December 2 (last Sunday) Dundee’s second ever Santa Dash event took place in the city.
Santa Dash 2018 saw hundreds of festive-spirited locals and visitors fully embrace their top-notch Santa gear (think full Santa suits, hats, beards, etc) and run 2km across the city centre for the incredible ARCHIE Foundation charity.
The event hopes to raise thousands for the Tayside Children’s Hospital at Ninewells – and if it’s any bit as successful as last year, which raised around about £5000, it certainly will.

We have some photos of the big day for you to check out.
This year, the event had around 500 sign-ups. However, approximately 100 more people showed up on the day. Now that’s success in numbers for you.
When asked about the Santa Dash during the event, Garry Smith (events organiser for Leisure and Culture Dundee) said:
Around 500 people signed up before with an extra 100 turning up today. Everyone is in the spirit and dressed up. Some of the accessories on show are just great.
It seems like the event channelled positive and energetic vibes all round.
