Six Santa teams tackle Sixhills sleigh race

Santas galore turned out to take part in this year’s charity sleigh race from Sixhills to the Heneage Arms at Hainton.

Six teams battled it out this year over the two-mile undulating country lane course, each pushing their non-mechanical sleigh, complete with their own Santa.

Out to retain their winning title from 2014 was the Sixhills team - and win they did in a time of 12 minutes and 58 seconds, beating last year’s time by nine seconds.

They also were named ‘best dressed team’ for their matching penguin T-shirts.

Stubby’s Santas moved up a place this year into second and Who Fed Rudolph Sprouts? blew away the rest of the teams to take third place.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Lincs and Notts Air Ambulance.
