Photos & Video: 175 take part in Burnham-On-Sea Christmas fun run

Over 175 fun runners were in a festive mood when they took part in Burnham-On-Sea's annual 'Jingle Run' on Sunday (December 22nd).

The popular event is held each year on the Sunday before Christmas and was well supported with a record turnout.

Many of the runners came dressed in colourful festive costumes to take part in two fun runs starting on the seafront.

The main four-mile run began on the North Esplanade and saw the runners wend their way along the seafront to Apex Park and back.

A shorter, one-mile children's fun run also took place in which over 70 young runners jogged along the beach from Maddock's Slade to the jetty and back.

Among the fancy dress outfits were Santa suits, reindeer and colourful Christmas elves!

Organiser Martin Rogers from Burnham Swim and Sports Academy told "We had a great turnout of runners dressed in some super costumes. Everyone had a fun time and it went really well."

"The weather stayed bright for both runs, which was fantastic. Thanks go to everyone who supported the event."
