In pictures: Lincoln Santa Fun Run 2016

This story is over

More than 2,500 Santas flowed through the streets of uphill Lincoln as part of the city’s annual charity Santa Fun Run and Walk.

Joined by over 200 festively dressed pooches, the Santas formed a sea of red and white on Sunday, December 11, to complete the course in the Cathedral Quarter.
