2018 Pram Race - Ready, Steady.......

As the weather turns colder so things are hotting up for the 2018 Pram Race. Planning is well under way and a number of new volunteers have come forward to fill in for members of the Pram Race Committe who are not available this year - many thanks.

 

However, we still need a lot of help on the day, particularly with marshalling at the various road closure points. So, if you think you can help for a couple of hours and want to earn some money for a local charity or good cause of your own, please let us know at chairman@pramrace.com or info@pramrace.com.

Couldn't Do It Without Our Sponsors

The security, stewarding and equipment costs of operating the Pram Race safely continue to increase. We would not be able to distribute so much money to the community without the amazing of our sponsors, Strutt & Parker, and the other organisations like Balfour Beatty, Howard’s Self Drive, Kamkorp Park, Kircher Building Services, St John’s Ambulance and especially Wooldridge that continue to provide such generous support for the race. In addition, each of the pubs and The Club contributed to our costs of delivering a safe and fun event.

Use it, or Loosit!

Each year we have a small number of complaints about people peeing in inappropriate places. We know that you have had a few and the cold air gets to you and you have to go but this is no excuse for not using the loos at the pubs and around the course. We have more loos than ever this year so please use them or risk us losing our event licence.

Going Up!

The cost of entering the Pram Race has stayed the same for many years whilst our costs have been rising. As a result, we are going to have to put up the entry price this year. If you book on-line before Friday 21st December adults will now cost £8.50 each whlist the cost for under 18s remains at £5 each plus EventBrite booking fees etc. Fees for entry on the day go up to £12 per adult and £6 per child. Still a bargain!
