Chase the Pud York - 10km

Get into the festive spirit by dressing up as Santa & racing around the Knavesmire (whilst trying to catch a Christmas Pudding) all for the British Heart Foundation! (BHF). FREE SANTA SUIT INCLUDED FOR ALL ENTRIES Chase The Pud York is back this year with a 10k distance Santa run, which will be a chip timed race. We have also kept the 3k untimed distance for those who’d like to walk, jog or run! This can be found in the related races section below. The BHF York Fundraising Group have been organising Chase The Pud York for around 20 years, & with this in mind we’d love if each of our entrants could raise just an extra £20 through Just Giving sponsorship to support the BHF's work into finding the cures & treatments needed for heart & circulatory diseases. In York alone, there are around 26,000 people living with these conditions, & each month, devastatingly, 40 lives are taken in this area because of them. With your help we can keep more families together in our local community. Set up your Just Giving Page here: https://tinyurl.com/59pvpwmv Before the BHF existed over half of all UK deaths were from heart & circulatory diseases. But BHF scientists, & supporters like you, have helped half that number. Their work has literally turned science fiction into reality. Machines that can restart hearts. The ability to fix arteries in tiny babies. The power to give someone a heart they weren't born with. Thank you to everyone who signs up to Chase The Pud York 2023, because of you, we can help the BHF continue to fund life-changing research. *Please note the 10k race starts at Cherry Lane, so allow time to walk over from race HQ (about 1km) once you have collected your number. * Registration open from 9am. Race begins at 10:30.
