One of Weymouth’s quirkiest festive events saw hundreds of Santas chase a pudding along the beach on Sunday.
Chase the Pudding, a 5km fun run, returned for 2019 to raise money for an important local cause, The Will Mackaness Trust. There was also a 2k Chase the Elf for under 14s.
Despite weather warnings the morning proved to be sunny and clear after a brief shower, with a rainbow breaking out as Santas and elves began their warm-up.
Weymouth Mayor, Cllr Graham Winter, and Mayoress Mary Jordan-Winter introduced the race. Cllr Winter said: “It’s a lovely community event and one I’m very proud to support.
