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 2,200. Such is the demand for numbers that in each of the last 10 years the race has sold out ahead of time. Why is it so popular? Traditionally each finisher in the race receives a Christmas pudding for their efforts. Food and seasonal music are provided after the race. Of course, the route is not bad either. For many, the Percy Pud signals the start of Christmas.
