Join the Santa dash around Downham Market to raise charity cash
Downham Market's one-way system will be jammed with Santas later this year – all raising money for charity.
The town's chamber of commerce and the Ryston Runners have joined forces for the event due to be held in November.
They hope that 100 Santas will take part in the one mile run, jog or walk around the one-way system to raise money in aid of the Robert Foot Leukaemia Fund.
The run will be held on November 27 as part of the Christmas lights switch-on festivities. It starts and finishes at the town hall and participants will be given Santa suits to wear for their two laps.
The adult entry fee is �8 which includes the suit, finishing medal and number. Those under the age of 13 can pay �5 and receive flashing antlers to wear on their circuits.

Proceeds from the Santa dash will go to the fund which was established in memory of a local man who died from leukaemia.
Robert Foot worked as a political advisor in Sierra Leone after years of civil war and he was made an OBE in 2001. Mr Foot's leukaemia was diagnosed in October 2000 and he died on November 5, 2002, aged 33.
