Whether you run, jog or walk the 5k route at Wolverhampton’s West Park, the event is all about having fun, feeling festive and raising money for Beacon Centre for the Blind.

Adult runners get their own Santa suit to wear, children will receive a hat and our four-legged friends will get a gift as well!

Everyone is welcome so make it a date in your festive calendar!
