Santa Fun Run at the start

Santa Fun Run at the start

Santa Fun Run takes place every year on Weymouth Beach in late December. The start line is right in front of Aaran House. Santas chase the pudding along the beach and back again. The pudding usually escapes the chasers. There are also junior races with fairies and elves.

Up to 300 Santas take part in the senior race and the Mayor and the Christmas Pantomime Dame attend. There are usually a few reindeer and elves joining in but no amount of magic seems to result in catching the pudding.
