Chase the Christmas Pudding Festive Family Fun Run

28th November 2021

What could be more amusing leading up to the Christmas period than getting out your festive costumes, chasing a giant Christmas Pudding all while having fun and raising vital funds for the Hospice of the Valleys’ 30th Anniversary.




Limited On the Day Registration will be available – please use the website (link above) to sign up and present your confirmation email at the registration desk – thank you.


Forget training or worrying about how fast you can complete it; this Festive Fun Run is all about dressing up, being with friends and family and supporting a good local cause.

You can run, jog, dance, skip or walk 2 laps of the scenic lake whilst chasing our giant Christmas Pudding.  Or take part virtually in your own local community.

Feel free to wear your own costume; elves, Santa reindeer, turkeys are all welcome – in fact anything Christmassy!  We’ll have a prize for the best fancy dress too.

The event is family friendly and wheelchair accessible; push prams are welcome so why not make it a family effort.  Well behaved dogs on leads are welcome to join us too.

There will be Christmas music to raise the spirits, raffle and well deserved hot and cold refreshments available in the Visitors Centre.  Changing facilities and parking available on site.


Those taking part virtually can also chase the pudding by recording your 5km and the fastest time will receive a prize!
