49 wonderful pictures from Southsea Santa Fun Run as hundreds of festive runners fill streets

Hundreds of Santas filled the streets of Southsea following the return of the fun run.

Residents dressed up in their best festive costumes to test themselves over 5k and 10k distances past Clarence Pier for good causes. Money was raised for a variety of local charities including Rowans Hospice.

Rewards were handed out to all the runners, with Father Christmas paying a visit and handing out gifts for the under-9s. Finishers were treated with a bespoke medal and mince pies once they crossed the finish line.

Here are 49 pictures from the event. Be sure to click through all the pictures to see if you can spot yourself.
