      WATCH: Charity Santa run returns to MediaCityUK

       

      THE annual Santa Fun Run returned to MediaCityUK even bigger and better than last year. 

       

      Hundreds of red Santas flooded the Quays to support ITV's Text Santa Christmas charity. This supports six different UK based charities. 

       

      They started with a hilarious warm up from mascot Percy the penguin, which included dancing to 'Gangnam Style.' People from all ages took part in the fun run, from old to young, and there were even some dogs getting involved in all the fun.

       

      They ran 5k in a circuit around the waterfront and were awarded medals and selection boxes at the finish line. No times or records were taken as the race was purely for fun and to raise money.
