The weather on Sunday morning was not too bad as over 7000 Santas, including for this year 500 Blue, Everton, Santas, took part in the 2009 Liverpool Santa Dash. The start was at the Pier Head and the runners are just leaving the start line at the head of a long tail of Santas ready to cover a 5 k route that ends at the Liverpool Town Hall.The ultimate aim is to raise money for charity through people having a good time, it has been estimated that over £500,000 has been raised this year.Santa dashes have been held for several years at towns and cities around the world and a competition for the most Santas has grown year on year. Liverpool held the record for the most santas running in the early years but last year Las Vegas just beat Liverpool by a couple of hundred runners.There were many people about with cameras, as you would expect, me included, and Flickr has started to sprout Santa Pictures on it. YouTube also has a number of videos, one of which is below.
