More information

This year, the Chase The Pudding race in Weymouth is bigger than ever – and we need your support!

On Sunday 15th December you can participate in a hilarious Chase The Pudding Christmas Race along Weymouth Beach for your chance to win a cash prize! All fees go towards the running of the event, and sponsorship is encouraged to raise money for the organising charity, The Will Mackaness Trust.  

Registration is from 9.30am in the Weymouth Pavilion Ocean Room followed by a warm up from 10.45am by fitness trainer Gina Hartley, with the race starting at 11am. Everybody is invited to come along to cheer and support this colourful Christmas event on Weymouth seafront.

This year’s Chase the Pudding will be started by Wessex FM breakfast presenter Dave Goulden along with Weymouth Town Mayor Cllr Graham Winter and stars from Cinderella, this year’s pantomime at Weymouth Pavilion.

Brand new for 2019 is the introduction of a female pudding. Mr and Mrs Pudding will now be chased along the beach by hundreds of Santas 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.

All race entry fees and event sponsorship will go to the Will Mackaness Trust.
