It is hoped people will don Santa suits and take part in the first ever Barnsley Museums Heritage Trust Santa Dash on Saturday, 3 December.
People of all ages are invited to take part in the 200m dash, which begins at eleven am, individually or as part of a team. They can go at their own pace and in their own way. This could be walk, run, skate, scooter or wheelchair, the race is open to all.
Santa dashers will be supplied with a free Santa suit as part of the ticket price, which is £6 per adult, £4 per child and £20 per family or team of four. All proceeds from ticket sales will go to the Barnsley Museums Heritage Trust, a charity whose aim is to ensure the future of the towns free museum service.
