Broad Haven Xmas Pudding Run

Broad Haven Xmas Pudding Run has become one of Pembrokeshire’s favourite family traditions. The annual event hosts runs of varying distances to suit all family members. It’s also the perfect opportunity to dress up in your best Christmas fancy dress.

This year the Xmas Pudding Run will be taking place on Saturday 30th November at midday. There will be a 10km approx, multi-terrain run, which starts and finishes in the picturesque seaside village of Broad Haven.

This fabulous charity run ensures all money raised will be donated to nominated charities which includes Prostate Cymru in memory of former Pudding Run marshal John Hart.

As the name of the run states, there is indeed a Christmas Pudding, along with your medal, waiting for you at the finish line at the Ocean Cafe Bar. It of course would not be Christmas without a complimentary glass of mulled wine and mince pie for all entrants.

If you fancy a giggle whilst getting into the Christmas spirit why not take part in fancy dress! Check out their Facebook page for pictures of previous entrants. There is even a ‘best dressed runner’ competition too, plus an event for the younger members of the family.

The ‘Mini Xmas Puds Run’ held later in the day is perfect for children to have their chance to get in on the action and join in the fancy dress with their own prizes up for grabs.

If you fancy taking part in this ever growing event, there are limited spaces left, so sign up quickly at www.xmaspuddingrun.co.uk.

If taking part doesn’t tickle your fancy, just coming down to show your support as a spectator is sure to be a great day out.

We are proud that Broad Haven and Little Haven are one of Pembrokeshire’s first villages to achieve Plastic Free Community status with Surfers Against Sewage, by educating and ensuring we all work together to look after our seaside and oceans. More information can be found www.sas.org.uk.
