Race Description

The Percy Pud 10km, South Yorkshire’s most popular 10km, is organised by Steel City Striders each year and takes place on the first Sunday in December along the picturesque Loxley Valley on the north west outskirts of Sheffield. The course is a slightly undulating, out and back one with very few turns making it ideal for people aiming to set a personal best. Each finisher in the race traditionally receives a Christmas pudding for their efforts. Food and seasonal music are provided after the race. The event has grown in popularity from the first race in 1993 when 600 finished the race to recent years when the entry has had to be limited to around 1500. Such is the demand for numbers that in each of the last 6 years over 700 entry forms have had to be returned as the race limit has been reached in early October. The 2008 race was no exception, as the race limit was reached within three weeks of the entry forms being published.
