We join a sea of Santas in Reading

Nicky and Catherine transformed into real life Santas on Sunday 6th December when they took part in Reading’s 5km Santa Run.

Waddling in their over-sized suits towards the start line at Forbury Gardens, the Spartans turned Santas were convinced magic was in the air when it started snowing… before they realised it was only blossom.

The sea of Santas looked incredible (yet very surreal) and all were treated to a fantastic warm-up from The Gym Reading before Michelle Jordan from Heart Breakfast sent runners on their way.

The 5km route passed through the town centre, the Oracle riverside and then along the picturesque canal tow-path before massive cheers led runners to the finish line outside The Forbury Hotel. Although Nicky and Catherine were content with their Santa suit, they were also rewarded with a brilliant race medal and goody bag.

Our office Santas even made the news, with Get Reading rating them at no.13 in its ’20 ways Reading won at Christmas this weekend’ feature – you can see the picture of them toasting post-run here.

The Promote team are hoping the Santa suits make a reappearance in the run up to Christmas!
