Kings Langley and Abbots Langley residents are being encouraged to don their Santa costumes and run or walk a 2.5 mile route.

Hemel Hempstead’s Santa Dash is taking place on Sunday, December 15 at 10am at Riverside. The event is being launched by actress Claire Skinner who stars in award-winning BBC sitcom Outnumbered, and was born in Hemel Hempstead.

The Santa Dash is in its sixth year and is a way to help raise funds for the Hospice of St Francis.

Entrants are asked to raise as much as they can in sponsorship for the hospice by running or walking the route.
