Official online event entry for Croft Hill Christmas Pudding Chase, Saturday, 14 December 2019

An exciting kids Cross Country run in Croft, with a festive twist.....a giant Christmas pudding will appear somewhere on the route for runners to try and catch! The first pudding catcher will receive a golden envelope with a prize as their reward! As the Pudding could disappear off route and then re-appear again on another section, any runner has a chance of catching him no matter what speed they are.

The course takes its runners through woods, over stiles and of course up and over the dizzy heights of Croft hill!

Prizes for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places on this testing course for those who love competition.

Every runner will receive a finishers medal at the end and a hot chocolate.

Mulled wine will be available to buy for the adults, and also sausage & bacon cobs and mince pies will be available to buy.

Festive hats, tops, or decorations that kids (and parents) wish to wear are welcomed.

All proceeds from the event will all be donated to projects within Croft Village and also Leicestershire Cares.

There will be 2 races, one for each age category below:

  • 1 mile Ages 5-8 start 11am (6 and under must be accompanied by an adult on the run).
  • 2.3 miles Ages 9-15 starts 11:45am
Please be aware this is a cross country course and so hazards such as tree roots, rocks, rabbit holes, mole hills and uneven surfaces should be expected, along with mud!

Position and time results will be posted on the Croft Hill Christmas Pudding Chase facebook page.

Parents/Guardians must remain onsite for the entire duration of the race and not attempt to leave their children in the care of the organisers. Whilst not racing, children must be under the supervision of their Parent/Guardian at all times. Parent/Guardians will be expected to escort their children to the start line and also greet their child as they cross the finish line.
