MADRID, Spain (NBC News) — A sea of red ran through the streets of the Spanish capital on Saturday as part of an annual fundraising race.
Fake snow added to the festive holiday atmosphere. About 10,000 runners, dressed as Santa Claus or his Elves, participated.
The event was organized by Spanish store El Corte Ingles–one of the biggest department store groups in Europe.
The race raises money for Spain’s multiple sclerosis (MS) society.
