Our annual event again takes place in Whitley Bay on Boxing Day.


This year promises to be an even bigger, more inclusive and successful family event.

Now in its 37th year, the 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 – no rush and no cut off time!) and runners young and old are encouraged to dress in their festive finest.

Each finisher will be invited to take home a Christmas Pudding. Funds raised by the run will be split between North Shields Poly, Woodlawn and Mountain Rescue

Adults – £13

Children (under 16) – £8
