Blogmas Day 8 – Santa Dash

Evening friends, Happy Day 8 of Blogmas!

This morning, my partner, friend and I took part in the Santa Dash.

The Santa Dash is an annual event that raises money for the Mountbatten Hospice.

For £20, plus £3.95 p&p you receive a santa suit which included a jacket, trousers, belt (which I didnt get so I bought my own), hat and beard.

We met at 11am at Ryde Superbowl where we did a warm up, and made sure that everyone was suited and booted and ready to walk, jog, run the 5k along the sea front!

I can’t exactly say we arrived ‘bright eyed and bushy tailed’, but we were enthusiastic, and thankful for the dry and clear weather.

If you’ve read my Day 7 post, you’ll understand that we had quite the night out!

With 5 hours sleep, slightly hungover, half a banana in my stomach and with out having a proper stretch … we didnt do too badly!

I wore my running gear underneath the santa outfit, which caused me to get quite hot, but it was thin and only for 5k!

By the end of it my trousers were in shreds, and so were alot if others.

We ran through the finish line and were presented with medals, water and minced pies by the brilliant Mountbatten volunteers.

I dont know how much was raised, but at a minimum of £20 per person, and hundreds of Santa’s, hopefully we raised a fair bit!
