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.
