🎶Santa Claus is Running to Town🎶

You better dress up
You better put your trainers on
You better get ready
For a 2.5 – 10k run
Santa Claus is running to town.

He's making a spreadsheet,
He's checking it twice,
He's gonna find out who's running at night
Santa Claus is running to town.

They run when you are sleeping
And run when you're awake
They know if your strava art is good or bad
So make it good for a 1km bonus sake.

You better pass the baton
Through the WhatsApp chat
You better run fast, I'm telling you why
'Cause Santa Claus is running to town (and competing against another team of Santa Claus’ to run the most distance over 24 hours)

Set the alarm before you’re sleeping
And make sure you’re awake (on time)
And when the Santa before you says GO!
You just go for goodness sake.

You better wave to kids!
Get beeped at by passing cars
You better cheer your team-mates, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is running to town.


Shout out to Vicky who masterminded the event, Paul Kelly who did some spreadsheet sorcery and Ellie D for baking edible medals for all participants!
