The iconic Santa Dash returns to Liverpool this Christmas, with thousands of red and blue Santas set to sprint around the city.
More than 3,000 people have already signed up to take part in the race on December 3, which is the 20th edition.
In true Scouse fashion, runners will dress up in either red or blue Santa suits which can be picked up from the pop-up shop in St John's from November 1. The store will be open until December 2, however, blue suits are already limited so don't leave it too late.

The annual race will take place on December 3, starting at 9.30am. The race is expected to finish at 11.00am, at which time the child-friendly 1K Mini Dash will commence.
How do I enter?
Runners can either enter online or in person, with blue suit entries costing £27 and red suit entries priced at £25.
Children can also enter the Mini Dash for £13, which is aimed at kids up to 12 years old. Children's suits are only available in red.
