St Albans Santas standing by for 2010 Jingle Bell Jog
Gearing up for the festive run in Hertfordshire

Registration has opened for the the event which begins at 11am on Sunday, December 12, and is known as, “the festive run in Hertfordshire.”

To add to the excitement, stars from the Alban Arena pantomime, Peter Pan, will meet the runners, starting the children’s race at 11am and the adults’ race at 11.30am. Santa himself will be very busy greeting visitors to his grotto and there will be a festive prize draw to enter on the day for all those who raise over �50 of sponsorship before December 12.
