Santa Claus spotted on Santa Cam running the London Marthon for Christmas Chairty

Shocked spectators were amussed today to see Santa Claus on SantaCam running the Anual London Marathon in aid of a Christmas Charity. Onlookers seemed shock to see the 'Real Santa Claus' running in the race, dressed in his trademark red suit being followed by his Reindeers: Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blitzen, and Rudolph .There appeared to be no sign of Mrs Claus who we belive stayed at home in the Northpole.

One spectator, Julie Quinn said 'I just couldnt belive it. I came to support the runners and and soak up the atmosphire. I wasnt expecting to see the Real Santa Claus running in the Race. It looked like he was eating a mince pie and drinking a glass of Sherry at the Same time'

The London Marathon was started by the Queen who pressed the starting button from windsor castle sending a tide of 40,000 runners through the streets of london.

Unlike Santa Claus who looked sweaty in his big red suit, the queen looked bright and cheerful in a glwoing pink outfit which as usual matched her hat to her jacket.

The Queen was latter joined by Prince Harry who will be giving out the throphies at the end of the Marathon.

When prince Harry was told Santa Claus was running in the race he said 'OMG, Icant belive it i have always wanted to meet the real Santa Claus' but unfortunatly Harry was to late... As Santa Claus passed the finish line at aproximatly 1.02pm he promtly got on his seigh and disapeared'

A voice over the loud speaker anounced Santa Claus had left the race with his medal and now would not be seen again until Christmas eve 2018.
