On Saturday 19th December 2015 a total of 140 adults and children dressed in Santa suits and Christmas clobber to take part the the 2 mile annual Santa Run from the town hall in Stornoway to the Smith Avenue Running Track for the Lewis Branch of Cancer Research Uk. It was the biggest yet in Stornoway.

The weather was not ideal for the event but no rain just wind. The run was started with a couple of lines of Jungle bells followed by Santa’s bell.

At the end of the run the Santa’s were given mince pie’s and other treats, served by the girls for the Lewis Branch of Cancer Research Uk.

Lewis and Harris Sports Council would like to thank all participates, Police Scotland, Stornoway MacAulay Road Coop for providing the mince pie’s and treats and marshals Donald E Macleod and John Emberson.

This year also so the 1st Tarbert Santa Run, so a big thank you to Cameron Morrison for organising this event.

The Lewis and Harris Sports Council would like to wish all its member clubs a Happy Christmas and a good New Year.
