Mr Bailey said Santa suits and skirts were optional attire and would be provided for those taking part in the event, comprising 3km and 5km options.

Along with prizes, a special yoga class would be held outside the Jacks Point club house at the end of the event.

About 5000 people are expected to turn out nationwide for the annual run, which will also be held in Dunedin along John Wilson Ocean Dr.

Registrations are from 5pm; the race begins at 6.30pm.
