Runners plumped for race
HUNDREDS of people dressed as Christmas puddings for a charity race at the weekend.
SignHealth’s inaugural Amersham Christmas Pudding Race took place in Old Amersham on Sunday.
More than 200 people followed either the 2.5km or 5km route, both of which started in Broadway, Old Amersham.
The event, which in total attracted between 500 and 600 people, also had festive stalls, pony rides, and Father Christmas had a grotto.
Organiser Linda Petrons said: “It went
Several of the runners dressed up as Christmas puddings; (below) Nicholetta Massoura-Townley at her Bee ARTisan gifts stall really well. We’re overwhelmed by the amount of support we had from the Amersham community. We had more than 300 runners, which was really great, and people took the time to dress up.
“We’re really pleased with how our first race went. It was a great success and we absolutely plan to repeat it in the future.”
The prize for Best Dressed Individual went to Martin Pounce, who dressed as a waiter holding a Christmas pudding.
