Liverpool Santa 'tache

He has given up shaving during November, so by the time December comes round he will have a beard to rival any on show at the Liverpool Santa Dash.


If you would like to reward his solo effort, he has set up a fund-raising page on www.bmycharity.com, so please support him as he supports Maternal Health in Rwanda

BTR Liverpool Santa Dash 2014

It's back! Liverpool Santa Dash - the biggest Santa Dash in Britain, and maybe the World !

From humble beginnings in 2004, the BTR Liverpool Santa Dash has grown year on year to become the phenomenon that brings over 8000 Santas to the centre of Liverpool.

And for 2014, the biggest and best promises to be even bigger and better on its 10th anniversary - the BTR Liverpool Santa Dash is aiming to bring over 10000 Santas to the centre of Liverpool, many of them raising funds for charity.

I have run in every BTR Liverpool Santa Dash, and once again, I will be running for Shyira Trust, raising funds for the Maternity Hospital and Safe Motherhood projects in Shyira, Rwanda. In previous years we have had a team, as many as 15, but this year there may be just me. But however many we have running, we will have fun, while Running for Rwanda.

If you would like to help, you can, and you have two choices - you can join me, get sponsorship, and we can all run for Rwanda. Alternatively, to help me raise much-needed funds for Maternal Health in Rwanda, you can sponsor me at www.bmycharity.com and every penny raised by Shyira Trust, plus Gift Aid, will be used to support maternal health projects in Rwanda

Whatever you decide, please support me as I maintain my ever-present status at Liverpool Santa Dash 2014 - one of only a handful of runners to have run all 11 stagings of the BTR Liverpool Santa Dash
