PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS YEARS’ BROAD HAVEN XMAS PUDDING RUN IS A VIRTUAL EVENT!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic it wouldn’t be possible to host this event in a normal way this year – as we would be breaking the law. We are therefore doing things virtually and there will be the option of a 5km event, a 10km event and a 1500m Little Puds Run.

Entries will open on 30/10/2020 and close on 30/11/2020. You will then have till the 15/12/2020 to complete your event and email/post a picture of yourself completing it! This can be completed wherever you like off-road, on-road, on a treadmill – this is all fine, as long as you are staying within COVID-19 guidelines. For the Little Puds Run, the distance is 1500m. This might be a lot for the smaller Puds to complete in one go, so you can do this as a cumulative event if you wish!

We don’t want to be posting puddings out, so all runners will receive an embroidered event badge with the distance completed on it. There will also be the option of purchasing an event beanie when you register for the event (at an additional cost). 

 

2020 NOMINATED CHARITIES

All proceeds from the run will go directly to our nominated charities. We are delighted to announce that this years’ chosen charity is Belle’s Story  (https://bellesstory.co.uk) – a local charity who provide direct support to young people touched by life-limiting illness and disabilities. They help to provide facilities, services and equipment to make a difference and also relieve hardship and suffering for their families.

Other charities we support on an ongoing basis are:  Prostate Cymru in memory of our former Pudding Run marshal John Hart, Surfers Against Sewage as part of our “plastic free” village status and the Friends of Broad Haven School who help organise the run.

We have no idea how much money we will be able to raise this year doing this as a virtual event, but charities have been hit so hard by the COVID-19 pandemic and all of the fundraising events it has prevented, we would love to see this become a successful virtual event and raise as much as possible to help out!

 There won’t be any medals this year, as it won’t be a timed event. There will be a prize for the “Best Dressed Runner however – which will be more random than ever as a virtual event!

 

MINI XMAS PUDS RUN

 As noted above, the distance for this is 1500m. This can be done in one go – or as a cumulative event for the younger runners. 

 

SPONSORSHIP

Any businesses who sponsor the event will be featured in our advertising and in our virtual thank yous!
