It is with a heavy heart that we have to inform you that due to the ongoing fight against the COVID-19 pandemic and the advice from our government, we are left with no option but to cancel this years Oxted Pram Race. This measure has been taken in the interests of both the competitors and the spectators, who’s safety is of the utmost importance to us.
We wish you well and look forward to seeing you all in 2021.
Oxted Rotary Pram Race
The Pram Race has been run since 1977. The ultimate objective of the Pram Race is to raise money for local causes, whilst having fun in the process. Participating in the event is quite simple – all you have to pay is an entry fee and ask family and friends to sponsor you to run the two thirds of a mile from Master Park to The Bell in Old Oxted High Street, however…
…you do need to push a pram in fancy dress and stop at each of the seven licensed premises on the way, where you have to down a drink as fast as you can! There are prizes as well as penalties for how well you do.
It’s a lovely family day for contestants and spectators, with the fun starting on Master Park and finishing up in the Pubs of Old Oxted High Street.
If pushing a pram is not your thing – why not get involved by helping on the day?
After watching on the side lines for a number of years, I finally got around to entering a pram 3 years ago and have
never looked back. We have entered every year since. One of the most fun events in Oxted every summer
