The 5km run will see hundreds of participants dress up as Father Christmas himself and dash through the streets of Dagenham to raise money for the hospice.

Sir Trevor will be at Dagenham and Redbridge’s Victoria Road ground on Sunday, December 10 to motivate and inspire the runners before they set off.

Anne Brown, head of fundraising at the Havering-atte-Bower hospice said, “Sir Trevor is a true sporting legend and we’re absolutely delighted that he’s agreed to join in our most exciting festive event of the year.

“It will make this year’s Santathon extra special for all our runners.”

Entry costs £10 for adults and £5 for under 16s – which includes a Santa suit. Registration is at 9.30am and the run starts at 11am.
