Now in its 34th year, the Woodlawn Boxing Day Pudding Run is a North East tradition, attracting thousands of runners to Whitley Bay every year to run off the Christmas excess with a seafront run suitable for all abilities.
The Pudding Run is 5k (3.1 miles) and runners young and old are encouraged to dress in their festive finest.
Each finisher will receive a Christmas Pudding and a certificate.
Funds raised by the run will be split between Woodlawn School and North Shields Poly.
Adults - £8
Children (under 16) - £4
Please note: In the event of snow or ice the race will be postponed to a later date for safety reasons. No refunds or deferrals will be available if postponement is necessary.
Entries are open for the Festive McTaggart Trot on Sunday 22nd December in Barton raising money for St Teresa's Hospice.
You choose whether you wish to run 3.5, 7 or 11 miles and predict a time.
You will then be put into a team of three runners. You will set off in your team of 3. At the 3.5 mile point your first runner will stop. The remaining two will run to the 7 mile point where your second runner will drop out and your last runner will run to the end at the 11 mile point.
Fancy dress is a must with Santa hats as a minimum! Just £8
This is a popular local race and usually sells out before the closing date - don't leave it too late!

Limited car parking is available at Saltwell Park and Gateshead Leisure centre. Toilets - there are several toilets in Saltwell park. £18, adults only (no junior races this year)
