What is it?
The 38th Great Christmas Pudding Race will take place on Saturday 8th December, in Covent Garden, London.
The event sees costumed teams of six try to complete a Christmas themed obstacle course, whilst carrying a Christmas pudding on a tray.
The course usually includes a flying foam slalom, and special challenges to complete along the way, such as pulling a cracker, completing a jigsaw, decorating a tree, finding a sixpence and collecting a letter from Santa.
This year’s event will begin just after 11am, with live entertainment and special guest appearances. After the official opening there will be a fancy dress parade of the teams, a race warm up with the zumba team from Pineapple Studios, and live entertainment from The Roxys.
The qualifying races will take place at 11.50am and 12.10pm, followed by the race final at 12.30pm.
The event is organised by CRAC on behalf of Cancer Research UK and supported by Matthew Walker and Covent Garden Market.
