QHOF Pram Race 2015

John Starns Photography-6283cropped

The QHOF Sutton Valence Pram Race has been held on New Year’s Day for more than quarter of a century and has raised significant amounts of money for both local and national causes.

Spectators come from throughout the surrounding countryside and the race is regularly featured in the local media.

Two races are run.  A Veterans’ Race, for competitors over the age of 45 and a Main Race.

The three-contestant teams dress is a variety of bizarre costumes of their own creation.  Two members of the team push the third member (always named thee ‘baby’) around  the course in a themed ‘pram’ or go-cart, stopping to drink a half pint of beer at each of the four public houses that line the route.
