HUNDREDS of people dressed as Father Christmas set off on a fun run at Heartlands, Pool earlier today.
Runners had the chance to take on a one or two mile route when it set off at the Totum Circle.
The event is put on to raise funds for Cornwall Hospice Care, providing adult hospice care services across the region.
Young people, mothers with push chairs and adults all took part in the fun run at Heartlands.
The heartlands event alone is expected to bring in around £2,000 for the local charity.
Father Christmas fun runs are put on across Cornwall to boost funding for the charity over the festive period.
