The Christmas Pudding Dash routes

This race is the perfect way to start Christmas off the right way and is a regular sell out.

The event consists of three races: The 4.5 mile main event, the 2 mile fun run, and the Children's Scurry.

The main event is one lap around the naturally undulating fields and footpaths of the tranquil Sussex village of Pett.

Make sure to don your best Christmas attire however, given the time of year, it could be wet and muddy.

    The Christmas Pud Dash is just great fun! Not even the very serious runners could have hoped for a PB in this race through fields and woods that had endured weeks of rain, but no-one complained - we were there for festive cheer and rewarded with mulled wine and mince pies afterwards along with a very seasonal medal. There were plenty of prizes too - very good quality wine for the age-grade winners. THANKS to all the organisers and helpers!!
