What if you could lose those extra Christmas pounds before you’re even looked at a roast turkey? To stop your belly jiggling like a bowl full of jelly this festive season, I’ve got the ideal 5k or 10k challenge for you.

Dust off your walking or running shoes, pull out those sleigh bells and call on the reindeers, because it’s time to get ready for the Irish Heart Foundation annual Santa Dash. The Santa’s Dash is organised in conjunction with Irish Fit. Simply join the thousands of Santa’s waddling for victory this December 11th in Dublin.

Every participant will get a free Santa suit to wear in the race and take home with them. The entry fee is just €25. Everyone that crosses the finish line will receive a special custom made Santa medal and timing chips are provided for those who want to measure their speed.

It takes place on Sunday 11th December at 2pm in Clontarf, Dublin.
