OVER 100 festive runners donned their Santa hats at the University of Stirling this past week to take part in the annual Santa Dash around campus.

Basking in the St Andrews Day sunshine, students, athletes, staff and members of the community worked their way around the 3km route in an assortment of themed costumes ranging from the humble piece of tinsel to the more adventurous human-sized Christmas presents.

Chris Black, who was also victorious in the recent Fright Night Fun Run at Halloween, was first male and overall winner with an impressive time of 11 minutes 47 seconds whilst first female was Sarah King in 14 minutes 33 seconds. The University’s high performance golf squad also followed up their success at the Halloween event as they took home the team award and the final prize of best dressed went to ‘Elf in a Present’ Emily Boardman.
