Santa and Pudsey are getting into the festive spirit for Children in Need this week to launch the inaugural MediaCityUK Santa Run, the perfect charity run before Christmas.
Hundreds of running Santas are expected to embark on a fun santa run around MediaCityUK at Salford Quays on Sunday 9th December to help raise money for Children in Need. The MediaCityUK Santa Run will start at MediaCityUK Square, outside the new BBC offices at Salford. The Santas will then run through the Lowry Plaza at The Lowry Outlet Mall, over the bridge, past the Imperial War Museum and over the Manchester Ship Canal via the new bridge before finishing in MediaCityUK square.
This is a fun Christmas event for the whole family and a great way for Santa to get in shape before the big day!
It is the first ever MediaCityUK Santa Run and we hope everyone will put on their red suits, take part and help raise some much needed funds for BBC Children in Need! To take part in the MediaCity UK Santa Run, you will need to wear a Santa suit. Either bring your own, or buy one from for a small fee.
The Santa Run starts at 10.15am and will be started by Pudsey himself.
Run entry fee for adults is £10 and £6 for children
The Santa Run entry fee including the Santa Suit is £15 for adults and £10 for children
