The 2023 Broad Haven Xmas Pudding Run will be going ahead as it did last year. We will be using the YHA Field Study Centre as our Registration base. All money raised will go to our nominated charities – with our main charity this year being Green Acres Animal Rescue. All runners will get a Christmas Pudding and a lovely wooden medal – and – as always – there will be a prize for the Best Dressed Runner!

There will also be the Little Puds Run on the beach for children, organised by the Friends of Broad Haven School. Entry for this will be on the day and will cost £2.50 per child. All children will receive a wooden medal.

As none of us knows what this winter may hold for us, we will not be doing a prizegiving again this year. There will be coffees and cake for sale in the YHA field Study Centre, and you will always be able to pick up a mulled wine in the Ocean, the Galleon, and other local hostelries, but we don’t want to organise things that might not be able to go ahead if any restrictions come into effect. Essentially, we should be able to carry on with the outdoor event part regardless.

Entries are now open and will close at midnight on Saturday 02/12/2023 – or before this if all the 300 entry places are booked

 To keep things simple, if you wish to purchase any merchandise – event beanies, cloth badges, t-shirts etc. please directly visit our shop at St Brides Bay Clothing:



All proceeds from the run will go directly to our nominated charities. The main nominated charity this year is Green Acres Animal Rescue (  In addition to funds raised by the run, the Pudding Run team will be able to collect donations of pet food at registration.

Other charities we support on an ongoing basis are the Friends of Broad Haven School who help organise the run and the 948 Squadron Air Cadets who will be volunteering at the finish line.

There will be wooden medals for all runners this year and there will be a “Best Dressed Runner Prize” for both the adult run and the children’s event.


As noted above, this event is entry on the day and organised by the Friends of Broad Haven School. The cost of entry is £2.50 and all entrants will get a wooden medal. Registration for this is also in the Broad Haven YHA Field Study Centre.
