Chase the Pudding

19th December 2021 @ 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Santa’s, Elves, Pantomime Dames and many other fabulous festive characters will gather on Weymouth Beach (Pavilion end) to take part in the annual Chase the Pudding race on Sunday 19th December.

Registration is from 9.30am in the Weymouth Pavilion Ocean Room followed by a warm up at 10.45am on Weymouth Beach, with the race commencing at 11am.

Everybody is invited to come along to cheer and support this colourful Christmas event on Weymouth seafront.

Following the introduction in 2019, both Mr & Mrs Pudding will now be chased along the beach by hundreds of Santa’s creating one of the great scenes of the festive season.

The Chase the Pudding race is approximately 5km and is from the Pavilion end of the beach to the groyne at Greenhill and back again.

The Chase the Elf race for under 14s will start five minutes after the Chase the Pudding and is a 2km race to the Pier Bandstand and back.
