Santa is set to come to the streets of Dagenham - and he won't be alone.

Runners of all ages are being invited to take part in Saint Francis Hospice’s Santathon, which sees participants take on a 5km run while dressed up in festive costumes.

This year will also see the introduction of the ‘chase the turkey’ challenge, where the first Santa to catch the person in the turkey suit will win a turkey from a local butcher.

Chris Franklin, events manager at the hospice, said: “This is always such a fun event and it really is for everyone.”

The run is set to take place on Sunday, December 9, starting from Dagenham and Redbridge’s Victoria Road ground at 11am.

Places cost £15 for an adult, £8 for under 16s or £30 for a family of four, with Santa suits included in the price.
