Thousands of running Santas flooded one of Madrid's main boulevards on Sunday, December 9, as they took part in a five-kilometer (three-mile) charity race with a very festive feel.
Clad in the traditional red jacket and hat, the participants set off from Paseo del Prado and ran to the Ruben Dario roundabout on Paseo de Castellana and back in a race where organizers aimed to congregate the biggest number of runners dressed in Santa Claus outfits.
More than 7,000 runners took part in the race, according to organizers.
Part of the funds raised in the race will be donated to the INTHEOS Foundation, helping children with cancer.
