SLIDESHOW: Christmas Pudding Dash in the grounds of Ashburnham Place

The annual Christmas Pudding Dash took place yesterday (Saturday 17) in the gounds of Ashburnham Place.

This year’s course changed slightly from previous years, but it was still around five miles in length and was still very muddy.

One piece of good news, however, is that organisers have taken out the long hill up the drive so the revised multi-terrain course is no longer classed as ‘hilly’!

The usual mince pies, Christmas puddings and a special Christmas medal was on offer at the finish line.

The charity for this year’s race is MND.

The race - which this year is celebrated its 10th birthday - got under way at 10.30am and featured chip timing.
