RUNNING Santas are being offered free bus travel to and from this weekend’s charity event.

Thousands of people taking part in Sunday’s Santa Dash will be offered free return travel if they are wearing the Santa Suit.

More than £200,000 has been raised for charity since the launch of the event in 2006 and this year’s chosen cause is the Beatson Cancer Charity.

First Glasgow Managing Director, Andrew Jarvis said: “We’re delighted to be once again supporting the Santa Dash with free travel for participants.

"This is a wonderful event and a great spectacle which really captures the true spirit of Christmas, and we’re wishing everyone all the very best for a fun day out.”

The warm-up starts at 9.30am and a significant number of roads will be closed in the City Centre.
