It was a beautiful day in Heaton Park, Manchester where everyone gathered either to run or just enjoy the festive spirit and visit Santa and his real reindeer. Middleton Brass Band got everyone moving with some Christmas carols before the Rochdale Football Clubs mascots Desmond and Dale took over and led the warm up.
It was the Lord Mayor of Manchester and actress Cherylee Houston who set the runners off, and Sarah Jayne Dunn cheered them on and congratulated them when they had finished, awarding trophies to the fastest people.
A huge thank you to everyone who took part and made the day a huge success. Merry Christmas everyone!
