Hundreds of runners are expected to don their festive outfits to take part in an annual charity run.

Father Christmas will put on his running shoes for the Santa Dash along Hove seafront for the five-kilometre run.

Organised by Commonwealth silver medalist runner John Gladwin, the dash raises thousands for the Rockinghorse Children’s Charity every year.

The race will set off from Hove Lawns, near the Peace Statue, with the course heading west along the Seafront Esplanade to Hove Lagoon, before returning back to the start to complete the run.

Runners can enter the dash for £18, which includes a Santa suit and a bespoke medal.

A children's 400m race will also take place, which is free to enter with all competitors getting a medal at the end.

People can sign up and raise money for Rockinghorse by visiting the charity's website.

The Santa Dash will start at 10.30am on December 10, with the children’s race taking place at 10.20am.
