HANOVER, Va. (WWBT) - The 2020 Santa Run in Hanover County is back on after it was previously canceled over COVID-19 concerns.

“We are happy to share that we’ve had additional conversations with our station membership and with county administration and have decided to move forward with Santa Runs this year,” Hanover Fire Station 7 posted on Facebook regarding the change.

Participating stations have noted some changes due to COVID-19, such as not exiting trucks or handing out candy this year.
