HUNDREDS of people dressed as Father Christmas have gathered in Padstow today to take part in a charity fun run and cycle.
The fun run set off just after 1pm today, while the cycle left Padstow earlier this morning.
The event is held at various locations across Cornwall to help raise funds for Cornwall Hospice Care, providing adult hospice care services across the region.
Men, women, young and old all took part in the fun run. Donning their Father Christmas outfits those taking part had the option to run either one or two miles.
Mince pies and a hot drink were waiting for runners on the finish line.
