SHOPPERS were treated to the surreal sight of scores of costumed Santas running through town on Sunday.

The town’s Santa Fun Run was brought back this year following a break prompted by last year’s dangerous icy conditions.

Participants could win medals for completing the 5km course, and prizes were available for the fastest male and female runners.

The fastest man was Richard Bromley, and the fastest woman was Linda Davies. Fastest child was George Starkey-Vickers. All three completed the course in around 17 minutes.

The event is organised by Bicester Town Council.
