Ready, steady... dash!

Galloway's is bringing back its popular Santa Dash to Penwortham next month and you are invited to join in the festive fun.

The Galloway's Santa Dash, sponsored by Penwortham Town Council, will take place on Sunday, 12th December at 11.30am.

Families can run, walk or jog 3km, starting and finishing at Galloway's, in Howick Park Avenue, just off Liverpool Road. Everybody who takes part will receive a Santa suit, a medal, mince pie and hot drink at the end.

Galloway’s is also hoping that supporters who cannot make the event can still take part by doing their own Santa Dash where they live, either on 12th December or another date that month.

Georgia Murphy, Corporate and Community Coordinator at Galloway’s, said: “We are so excited to be able to hold our popular Galloway’s Santa Dash in person this year.

“Our big event in 2019 was a huge success and we cannot wait to top that this time.

"We want to say a big thank you to Penwortham Town Council for once again supporting us.

“We were also amazed at how popular our virtual Santa Dash was last year, so we wanted to make sure those that cannot get to Penwortham on 12th December don’t miss out by taking part anytime, anywhere.”

Steve Caswell, from Penwortham Town Council, said: “We are happy to once again show our support for Galloway’s, which is a well-loved charity in the local community. We are sure that seeing a crowd of Santas along Liverpool Road will get us all in the Christmas spirit, all whilst raising much needed funds for people living with sight loss.

“So sign up, put on your Santa outfit and get dashing!”

Entry is £12 for adults, £7 for children and a family ticket is £30.

Every season since 2017, I've put together a weekly summary of how each Oklahoma State football commit played in their high school games that week. Obviously this has been a weird year and a handful of OSU's commits didn't start playing until two weeks ago. Now that everyone is playing again, I'm bringing this weekly update back.We'll start with a quick recap of what each commit has done so far. The Texas commits didn't start playing until two weeks ago, while the Oklahoma commits are about halfway through the season. With plenty of skill players in this class, I'm hoping this weekly update will include plenty of highlights. Bryson and Blaine Green WR Allen High School As a twin…
