AROUND 400 Santas went on the run in Sheffield city centre to raise money for the British Heart Foundation.
In fact, they ran, walked, jogged and pushed prams along a one-mile route on Sunday after Lord Mayor Sylvia Dunkley started the event in Tudor Square.
Adults paid to take part in the Santa Jog, and were given a Santa suit.
David Pugsley, of Totley, who was joined by his daughter Leanne and two-year-old grandson William, entered for the second year after undergoing a double heart bypass in 2007.
“I entered last year and enjoyed it so much I wanted to do it again because it is for such a good cause,” he said.
Malcolm Geeson, aged 66, from Woodhouse, was among a group of around 50 men and women who attend cardiac rehabilitation sessions at Graves Leisure Centre.
“I had a heart attack two years ago so I feel it is important to support charities like the British Heart Foundation to help with research and treatment,” he said.
“It is the first time I have ever done it but it is a brilliant event with everyone in such good spirits at this time of year.”
The charity is celebrating its 50th anniversary.
