Families enjoying the sunshine in Barshaw Park on Sunday morning would have been forgiven for thinking Christmas had come early when a group of Santas dashed past.
The red-and-white robed runners were taking part in the annual ACCORD Hospice Santa Dash.
Organised by Good2Run at the Pro Life Gym in Paisley, the 5k race attracted 65 runners of all ages, from eight to 80.
And every runner, from youngsters to grandparents, had turned out in outfits that would make the real Father Christmas proud.
Ken Mathie, fundraising manager for the Paisley hospice, said: “The charity Santa dash event went very well, especially as it is only the second year we’ve run it.
“There was a lovely festive atmosphere with runners of all ages taking part.
“Numbers were slightly down this year mainly because a big contingent from Paisley Grammar, who took part last year, couldn’t make it along on Sunday.
“But they have promised they will be there next year so we’re looking forward to organising the event again.”
He added: “We don’t have the final total for cash raised in yet but we’re hoping to have collected about £1000.”
And Ken thanked Good2Run for organising the event and Rowantree Cafe in the park for their support.
