1,000 jogging Santas run for charity in Sweden


Stockholm: More than 1,000 joggers dressed as Santa Claus wearing red suits, boots and long white beards ran through the streets of Stockholm for charity today.

“It was brilliant. I’m a Santa enthusiast and an avid runner, so its the best of two worlds,” said Andreas, a 27-year-old participant.

The three-kilometre run was organized for various charities including Save the Children and the Red Cross.

“It was the first I ran as a Santa and it was a lot of fun,” said 26-year-old Elin.

“The Santa suit was cosy and warm. It was a good opportunity to run as a Santa for good causes.”

The race had no official winner. In true Santa spirit it had the goal of bringing awareness of the poor and needy during the holiday season.
