THE horrible weather is due to have passed by the time hundreds of people decked in red converge on Tralee Bay Wetlands centre for the annual  Santa 5k Fun Run and there’s still time to register.

Now in its sixth year this event has gone from strength to strength as families get into the Christmas spirit by coming out to participate, support and enjoy this yearly colourful display.

This year, the event will, as in prior years, commence and finish at Tralee Wetlands centre with the event commencing at 11am.

The event, which is organised in memory of Fiona Moore, of Caherslee who passed away in 2013, raises much needed funds for deserving children’s charities.

To date the proceeds have gone to Make a Wish Foundation, Heart Children Ireland, Ronald McDonald House, Barretstown and Kerry University Hospital.

This year, the chosen charity for the Tralee Santa Fun Run is Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children, where each year hundreds of children are treated for serious medical conditions.

The cost is €10 per adult and €5 for under 12’s so if you want to join the masses, click here to register. Medals will be available for all participants as well as refreshments and entertainment en route.
