Start & finish: Candleston Car Park, Merthyr Mawr, Bridgend, South Wales
Distance: 6 Miles (approximate!)
Terrain: Multi-terrain (Sand, Track, Road, Field)
We are excited to announce that we will be running a new route this year. It will still include all the features you've come to love about the Pudding Race. We'll still start and finish from the carpark.
This is due to the fact that there will be improvement works at the treatment plant and therefore we will be unable to run that part of the course.
More details will be released about the new route in due course but the terrain will still be varied, the length will not change (well given the terrain it may vary a little) and most importantly mulled wine and mince pies will still be available on the course.
Topgraphy: Various (Dunes, Hills, Flat)
Traffic free?: No, there are two crossing points which are very well marshalled
Online entry only: £16 for affiliated runners, £18 for non affiliated runners.
Please note that during the registration process your Welsh Athletics/UKA membership will be checked and if valid the appropriate discount will be applied.
Scottish Athletics and British Athletics members can also obtain the discount by entering their membership number into the appropriate field.
An administration fee of 6% will be applied to each order by our online entry system partner, Results Base.
Please note that you will only be able to enter a maximum of TWO runners per order during the entry process. You can, of course, place multiple orders but this limit is to allow a fairer distribution as we know the event sells through really quickly.
Registration deadline: 3rd December 2017 (but it will be sold out long before then!)
Parking is included in entry fee
Nearest public showers available at Bridgend Recreation Centre, please note there may be a charge for this service.
Race memento: a Christmas Pudding, of course!!
Prizes for category winners from Run & Become Running Shop - Cardiff
Spot prize, sponsored by JCP Solicitors, for the first lady and gent to reach the top of the big dipper (subject to them also finishing the course).
Race packs (number and timing chip) will be sent to the address you supply to us. Please ensure the details are correct in your athlete record - see the FAQ for more details, updating the athlete is not the same as updating your profile.
The reduction in fees is only available to runners who are affiliated to an athletic council such as Welsh Athletics or UK Athletics. Runners who claim the reduced fees and are not affiliated may be refused entry when entry checks are conducted.
