Percy Pud 10K
4th December 2016 at 9:30amEntries closed
We organise South Yorkshire’s most popular 10km each year which takes place on the first Sunday in December.
The event has grown in popularity from the first race in 1993 when 600 finished the race to recent years when the entry has had to be limited to around 2,200.
Such is the demand for numbers that in each of the last 10 years the race has sold out ahead of time.
The 2013 race was no exception, as the race limit was reached within two weeks of the entries opening, in 2014 this was 36 hours and in 2015 it took just 2 hours to sell 2,200 entries.
Why is it so popular? Traditionally each finisher in the race receives a Christmas pudding for their efforts. Food and seasonal music are provided after the race. Of course, the route is not bad either.
For many, the Percy Pud signals the start of Christmas.
