3rd Dartford Bridge Christmas pudding run 6th December 2020
It finally happened – We are now on Instagram. Please follow us @bridgeeventsdartford.
Race update 08/012/2020
Thank you all for taking part this year. To be honest I did not think it would happen as so many races have been canceled. Sorry for the delay but I had to go into work Sunday afternoon and Monday if my busy day at work this time of year.
If you fancy another run there is a Charity cross country race taking place next Sunday in Swanley. Its 5k and it should be fun as its nice and muddy. I hope to be there running.
I will update the web site when I have worked out how much we have raised for charity and who its gong to.
Have a great Christmas and stay safe.
See you all again in 2021
Below was taken from the Government web site this morning for tier 3.
Organized outdoor sport, and physical activity and exercise classes can continue, however higher-risk contact activity should not take place. So as long as you don’t rugby tackling each other you are ok
So unless I am told other wise the Christmas run will still take place. I will update the web site early next week with the run course and parking details. The run is limited to 100 runners for safety reasons.
The Christmas run will be taking place 3 days after lockdown. In the event of them extending lockdown we will move the race back a few weeks to the 20th or to the 27th December. It will give you chance to burn of all the food and drink from Christmas.
We are back again for the 3rd running of the Christmas pudding run.
Due to all the Covid19 issues we have decide to limit the race to 100 runners.
A full race brief was sent out Friday morning with all the information that you will need to know. If you did not get this can you please contact me..
