Organised by St Raphael’s Hospice, two dashes will take place on Wimbledon Common and Nonsuch Park on December 1 and 8 respectively.

Participants can walk, jog or trot the three-quarters-of-a-mile route and the events are suitable for all ages.

Registration is £10 for adults, £5 for under 16s (children three and under are free) and £20 for a family group of two adults and two children.

The registration fee includes a Santa suit.
