City workers heading for the Tube on Tuesday evening may have received a bemusing surprise – as hundreds of their peers ran past dressed head-to-toe as Little Saint Nick.

The annual 5k fun run through the City started at Old Spitalfields market and ended up there once more – with mince pies and mulled wine on hand to welcome the jolly joggers and an afterparty at Smiths of Spitalfields. The event was raising money for children’s charity Brainwave.

“It was a sight not to miss”

“Great to see so many people swapping their usual office attire for Santa suits and dashing around the city,” said Irwin Mitchell worker Auriana Griffiths.
“It was a sight not to miss. A really fun event for a fantastic charity.”
