THE 2021 BROAD HAVEN XMAS PUDDING RUN IS GOING AHEAD!

THERE WILL ALSO BE THE OPTION OF 5km, 10km and 20km VIRTUAL RUNS FOR THOSE WHO WISH TO DO SO (please note that the virtual run places cannot be exchanged for a place in the “real” run)

Hopefully as things are opening up for sporting events, we will try to ensure that the 2021 Broad Haven Xmas Pudding Run goes ahead as normal. We will need to deviate from our normal gatherings and prizegiving etc., but we should still be able to continue with the “real run” as long as nothing drastically changes. 

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.

For those who are understandably a little more cautious – or who just don’t like running with lots of people – then we have the option of a virtual 5km, 10km AND a 20km run. Again, all runners entering this option will receive a wooden medal (after entries have closed).

Entries will open on 23/10/2021 and close on Saturday 27/11/2021 (or when the event is full for the “real” run).

For the virtual event, you will then have till the 12/12/2021 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.

2021 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 the Paul Sartori Foundation (https://paulsartori.org)  – a registered local charity who provide free, specialised  support, care and advice for those in the later stages of any life limiting illness. This charity was chosen by Bob Froy in memory of his father Gordon Smith who was one of our marshals and a great supporter of the Pudding Run from the very start in 2012. 

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.

There will be wooden medals for all runners this year and there will be a “Best Dressed Runner Prize” both for the “real” event and for the “virtual” runners. 

LITTLE PUDS RUN

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.

Any businesses who sponsor the event will be featured in our advertising, on the back of our event T shirt which is available from the online shop (see the link above), and in our virtual thank yous!
