ANYONE out and about on the Wednesday night before Christmas may well have had a nice surprise!

The chances are they may have witnessed dozens of Father Christmases darting past them around the time the clock struck seven...

The festive Santas were Todmorden Harriers members who had donned the fancy dress for their regular training run date, and headed up the hillsides from their starting point at the Masons Arms at the bottom of Bacup Road, re-emerging around the town centre a while later.

It’s become something of a pre-Christmas run tradition, and isn’t half as frightening as their Halloween run!
