Avenham Park was a sea of Santa hats and cheeky bottoms on Saturday morning.

Ben Ashworth organised the second Cheeky Santa Dash to raise money for a number of charities.

Around 200 runners took on the 5k course, joined by Ashworth – who has terminal bowel cancer – as he completed the first lap of his Guild Wheel challenge.

He finally finished on Saturday evening in the pouring rain after having run 46 miles.

More than £2,000 was raised for Beating Bowel Cancer, Rosemere Cancer Foundation and Mummy’s Star charities during the Santa Dash.

Ben’s sister Grace Ashworth was in the park with her camera to capture these photos of Ben and the runners.
