Santas will be on the run, hot or cold

Sometimes, running in the summer heat can make you red hot.

But tomorrow, whether it's hot or cold, there will be dozens of red, hot runners participating in the Great KidsCan Santa Run at Dunedin's St Clair Beach.

Brighton Sea Scouts club member and Santa Run organiser Sarah Redfearn said runners would run up to 3km wearing santa suits to raise funds for the

KidsCan charity which supports New Zealand children living in poverty.

"It's a great event in aid of a great cause - kids supporting kids is always a healthy thing and what better way to do it than run around the beach in a santa suit."

About 70 runners had already registered, but participants can register at the event. About 120 runners were expected, she said.

The event begins at the St Clair Surf Club at 6.30pm.
