Thousands of Santas took to the streets of Liverpool today for the 14th annual Santa Dash.
They were raising money for Claire House children's hospice and other charities too.
The event's regarded as the city's kick start to Christmas.
Liverpool Wire zip wire challenge will be playing host to a group of Santas who will be flying high over the city centre this morning.
The group will be dressed in full Santa suits as they embark on the zip wire challenge to help launch this year's Liverpool Santa Dash.
Around 10,000 people are expected to take part in the 2014 event on 7 December.
There may be nearly six months to go but Liverpool's already gearing up for this year's Santa dash. An appeal will be launched later for people to take part and try to beat Las Vegas for the world title.
The Santa dash is a 5K fun run that started in Liverpool in 2004 and has grown in popularity every year. The event is open to runners, joggers and walkers and everyone takes part in the Santa suit provided.
