Earn Your Christmas Pudding on Portland
Posted November 30th, 2010 | No Comments
The holidays are known to pack on the pounds, and we are not talking in your wallet. As the season approaches, it is not uncommon for many people to gain about a half a stone, what with the Christmas parties and festivities which focus around rich foods and lots of drink. So, this year, why not take the initiative and do something active during the month of December; or as I like to call it, earn your Christmas pudding!
On the 19th December, they will be holding a Chase the Pudding 5k Santa Dash to help raise money for the Dorset local charity, Julia’s House. The race will be held on Weymouth Beach. Registration begins at 9:00, the race from 11:00-12:00; entry fee is set at a £10 minimum for adults, under 10’s are free if running with a family member. The theme for this year is “Santerly or Scantily Clad”; all entries MUST dress up in full-on Santa suit with beard or down in next to nothing (think speedo or bikini. NO NUDITY ALLOWED)
If that wasn’t enough to tip the scales back in your favour, then on Christmas day, the Lion’s Club will be holding their annual Christmas Day Harbour Swim in Weymouth. On the day, hundreds of people will plunge into the icy depths to swim across Weymouth Harbour to raise money for charity. Registration opens at the Harbourmaster’s office at 10am or in advance online at the Weymouth Lions Club website. Also online are sponsorship forms. Entry fee is just £5.
