A group of Santa’s will take over a seaside prom to raise money for a new hospice.

On December 17, East Coast Hospice is holding a Santa Dash or Gorleston Promenade.

There will be festive fun for everyone with a 2k fun run, jog, walk or skip at 10.30am along the flat seafront route and followed at 11.30am when the pace goes up a gear with a competitive, professionally chip timed 5k Santa Dash Race on an organised route on the Gorleston Cliff top.

Registration for the event is now open online at or by calling 01493 718707. Details of entry fees are available on the website.

Each paying entrant will receive a Santa hat at the start of the dash and souvenir medal.

A spokesman for the charity thanked sponsors Persimmon Homes and Coleman Opticians and race director Chris Harbord, who also organises the popular clifftop Parkrun.
