Windlesham Pram Race 2023

This year’s Windlesham Pram Race will be on 26th December 2023, with the race itself starting from from 10:15am. Funds raised from the last event in 2022 have paid for the new defibrillator that was installed at the St John church in Windlesham.
The route will as usual start from Gordon Murray going down Chertsey Road passing The Brickmakers, The Surrey Cricketers and The Sun.
The route then goes up Updown Hill past the Rashoi and then looping through Pound Lane past the Half Moon and The Windlesham Club & Theatre before finishing at the Field of Remembrance by around 1pm.
We aim to have vendors on the Field of Remembrance itself as we did last year.
Yes the pubs (and other local businesses) will be open during the Race and serving Food and drink (and many before the race).
The website will be updated including details of registration once we have finalised a few more details.
We will provide more regular updates as we near December.

Restarting the Windlesham Pram Race


The Pram Race has been run on Boxing Day in varying formats for well over 50 years.


Our primary purpose in restarting the race after the Covid restrictions has been to raise money for charity and support deserving causes in the local community.


Many who took part in a survey prior to the event wanted the Pram Race format to continue but want it modified to address some of the behavioural issues that have been experienced in the past few years.


We have many lessons to learn and adjustments to make. That is especially the case with the format changes to produce a more family-oriented event.


We believe that supporting the village pubs and the Club is important; several of whom chose to open after the race was over.


Putting on an event of this type requires the support of a huge number of people and commercial organisations. We wish to thanks to our commercial sponsors and supporters:


  • Gordon Murray Group;
  • Newton Rowe;,
  • Frog Bikes;
  • The Wooldridge Group;
  • Shorts Group;
  • The Windlesham Club and
  • The Rashoi.


There can be no race without our excellent 28 volunteer marshals who also deserve special thanks.


We will be back next year. The Pram Race will continue to evolve and change.


If you share our commitment to raising money for charity and believe that you can work with us to improve the organisation of the Pram Race for 2023, please contact us.


Congratulations to all those who participated in this year's Pram Race.


Winners as follows:


Fastest - Sanderson Trophy – Crispy Boys (see picture to the left, bottom row)
