Madrid, 10 December 2017 (MIA) - More than 7,000 people dressed as Santa Claus ran through central Madrid on Sunday in a charity race raising money for cancer care, Reuters reports.
Sacrificing comfort for a good cause, racegoers donned red robes, Santa hats and billowing white beards to run five kilometres along Madrid’s famous Paseo de la Castellana avenue.
Children also took part, many dressing in green robes and elf hats in what organisers claim is the largest Santa-themed race in the world.
Part of the entry fee paid by each racegoer will be donated to cancer care non-profit Fundacion Intheos. sk/15:31
