Santas, elves, stars and Christmas trees could all be seen around the capital this lunchtime in the Isle of Man Bank's annual Santa Dash.
There were two records set this year with more than 220 Santas racing and a new best time of four minutes twenty.
Winner Kevin Loundes was the winner, beating the record he set in 2011 of 4 minutes 28 seconds.
Kevin's win gave him an extra £300 for his chosen charity, Friends of Manx Diabetics, which he says will be greatly appreciated:
