Some people may have been surprised at a squadron of out of season Santas running about Newton Stewart - but it was all for a good cause.
Sunday saw the annual Santa Dash organised by Newton Stewart and District Round Table.
The Santa Dash is a fun run open to the whole family. The event includes the ‘Roon the Risk’ – 10k road race, which follows the Risk Road and offers stunning views across the Galloway hills.
You could also ‘Walk the Risk’ and there was a Junior 2k event as well.
