This year United Response, in partnership with The Teddington Society, will be hosting the Teddington Pram Race,  a community event held on the 30th June alongside the Teddington fair.

The Pram Race has been a local tradition in Teddington for over 15 years. While it has had its ups and downs, United Response have taken the reins to ensure this local tradition is restored to its former glory.

About the race

Teams of 3-5 people can enter a pram to run the race. You will have to decorate a pram (or something similar) and dress up in the wackiest costumes you can find.

The racers will start at The Mason Arms pub and make their way along the route. The race is just under a mile long and will take the racers along Teddington high street, where crowds will be gathered to cheer everyone on.

Throughout the route we will have marshals stationed at different checkpoints. At these checkpoints participants will have to complete different challenges. Challenges may include singing a nursery rhythm as loud as you can, or eating three crackers in the fastest time, but the challenges are top secret so you will not know until you reach the checkpoints.

The race will finish at Udney Hall Gardens where the Teddington fair is taking place.
