Will you be a red-faced Rudolph or a suave Santa?

The Mayor of Redbridge, Cllr Linda Huggett, is hosting two fun runs on Sunday, December 3, with all proceeds going to the mayor’s charity appeal.

The first is a 10k run for the adults which starts at 10am from Beal High School in Woodford Bridge Road, Redbridge.

The second is a 2k family fun run (or walk, or wheel) which starts at noon, at the same venue.

A council spokeswoman said: “Whatever your ability, there is something for you to join in and help to support Saint Francis Hospice and Haven House.

“We want this to be a fun event and those taking part are encouraged to wear festive costumes with a prize for the best outfit.”

All participants will get a free Santa hat and a medal just for taking part.

The fee is £10 per adult or £10 per team at the noon race.
