Anchorsholme councillor Paul Galley said: "We are delighted to see the return of the annual Elf Run to the Park.”It's so much fun especially as it connects with a Christmas Market and fairground rides which will be on during the event.”If you don’t feel you can run, you can simply jog, stroll or even jingle all the way to help raise money for our much-loved local hospital and be part of a really special day.”
