WDC Santas deliver early gift for whales and dolphins

We couldn’t have been more delighted with the response for our first ever Santa Run; 23 WDC Santas joined thousands of others as they took on 5 or 10K in full Santa suit and beard in Victoria Park, London.

Sounds like fun? Why not join us in 2014? book your place here.
