Danish Santas Run for Guinness World Record

Thousands of people dressed as Santa Claus gathered in the old town of Kalundborg yesterday.
This was Denmark’s first Viking capital, but now it’s trying to get into The Guinness World Record Book for the world's largest Santa run. The record is currently held by Liverpool in United Kingdom where 4,000 Santas raced. But yesterday in Denmark only thirteen hundred managed to turn up for the six kilometer run. Although they didn't break any records, they did raise a good deal of money for children from low-income families and members of various sports associations. Exactly 25 minutes after the race's start, Michael Jensen and Philip Christiansen crossed the finish line at the same time.
