A MESSAGE FROM THE CHAIRMAN

Mission Accomplished!

Twelve months ago, myself and Mike set ourselves a goal of not only saving the Pram Race from extinction – but to also enhance the number of entrants in every category. All whilst acknowledging its heritage as an adults soapbox race / pub crawl, however focusing on what we see as the key to its future success – as a great family event.

Now whilst we knew we could rely upon the many beer hungry dads to step up, none of us expected the incredible increase in child numbers. At 105, they actually outnumbered the male contestants! A true sign that the next generation is secured, as is the events future.

“So where is there room improvement??”, I hear you ask; Ladies, it’s your time to step up. With only one all ladies team (who did a fantastic job), there is certainly room for a little competition.

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?

TESTIMONIAL

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
