Liverpool Santa Dash 2013 - in words and images

So that's it for another year - the 10th Liverpool Santa Dash has been and gone.

And what a mixture it was - adults, children, people pulling sleighs, dogs dressed as reindeers, men dressed as fairies, people calling at pubs for mid-race refreshments - you name it, Liverpool Santa Dash has it all, and here are some images to prove it.

The amount raised for safe motherhood and maternal health projects in Rwanda currently stands at £170 plus Gift Aid, with some more still to come. Online donations are still welcome at and every penny raised, plus Gift Aid, will go towards the safe motherhood projects in Rwanda, supported by Shyira Trust.
