Organiser's Description

FOREST PLUM PUDDING 2021 -  Burn off those Christmas Calories with a 5k or 10k run or walk

This year, the restrictions imposed during the pandemic mean we have lost both our Autumn and Spring Half Marathons. Rather than sit back and wait for conditions to revert back to normal, we would like to give you the chance to burn off some Christmas calories with a challenge and at the same time raise money for charity. 

So we have decided to have a virtual event; the first ever Forest Plum Pudding Virtual Event.

Charities are not able to carry out their normal fund raising duties and yet they are expected to help out even more. By entering you can help us to help them. 

The aim is for people to sign up and donate their money to the charity and then choose when and where they take part; all we ask is that you obey the current regulations regarding COVID 19 and respect other people whilst participating.

Choose either a 5k or 10k route.

There will be a souvenir medal for the finishers. 

Best fancy dress, backed up by photographic evidence, will win £50 for their favourite charity or good cause.

Results and any pictures will be available on facebook/website

The Event:

Entries are now open and will close on Sunday 3rd January at midday. 

Once entered you will need to decide when and where to carry out your run or walk. you may wish to run on your favourite training patch, walk around a local park, or jog on a treadmil at home or in a gym. 

You need not finish the distance in one go, but may break it into a number of sections.

You carry out your challenge at any time between 08:00 on Saturday 26th December 2020 and 20:00 on Sunday 3rd January 2021.

Please record you own time and once complete drop us an Email to PlumPudding@rotary-rfod.org.uk include your name, your time, whether you finished the event in one go or in sections. Please also attach a photo if you have one. 

To qualify results must be received by 20:00 on Tuesday 5th January.

Medals and other awards will be distributed either by collection from pick up points across the Forest, as coronavirus restrictions allow or you may send a stamped addressed envelope.
