Good hilly course. My disappointment was my result wasn't listed and no reply after email. Trail shoes must be worn.

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!!
