Heather Suttie of the Sunday Mail Centenary Fund said: “Last year the Glasgow Santa Dash raised for 17 charities. We’d like to top that this year and hope this is the biggest ever Santa Dash to end Glasgow 2014 on a massive high.
“You don’t have to be a serious runner to take part.
“Everyone is welcome for what is a fun morning and a brilliant way to raise money for some very worthy causes.
“Runners and walkers of all levels of ability are welcome.”
