2018 - We Did It Again!
We had yet another successful Pram Race on Boxing Day - the 51st running of the event. Large and enthusiastic crowds supported the 650 runners who pushed, pulled or otherwise persuaded 80 ‘Prams’ around the village.
Cllr Dan Adams, Mayor of Surrey Heath, dressed in full mayoral regalia and Mrs Sarah Adams, Mayoress of Surrey Heath started the race and helped choose the winners.
A Huge Thanks to 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, Penny Car Hire, Kamkorp Park, Kircher Building Services 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.
Well Done The Winners - and very one else..
Ecological concerns were a big theme this year and ‘Plastic isn’t Fantastic’ were deserving winners of the Best Dressed category with an extraordinary ‘Batmobile’ winners of the Best Engineered Pram. The John Sanderson Trophy for the fastest pram running around the village was won by ‘Prison Break’.
The competition to collect the most was won again by Chobham Rugby’s Pink Ladies team (£591) just beating Doug Smith's Blue Whale (£576) and the Zombies bringing home a very creditable £457.
Well done to everyone who took part and put so much effort into their prams and costumes. The standard gets higher every year.
