Pagham Pram Race
The Mill, Pagham Road
IT HAS been going for over 60 years and now final preparations are underway for this year’s Pagham Pram Race.
In 1946, a group of demobbed servicemen decided they would race.
Since then, the Pagham Pram Race has been run every year on Boxing Day, whatever the weather, starting at the mill in Pagham Road and passing The Bear, The Lamb and The Kings Beach.
It’s a course of roughly three miles that finishes at The Lamb car park.
In recent years, there have been as many as 60 entrants, with many choosing to don their best fancy dress costumes with fantastically designed floats.
The race starts at 11am on Boxing Day every year whatever the weather, without fail, from Mill farm on Pagham Road at Pagham.
Contestants can either sign on online before the day or on the day. An entrance fee or donation of at least £10 is required.
The race has several different categories.
Main Race – Pram chassis (rules apply)
Novelty non pram chassis
Disabled (pram chassis)
Disabled (non pram chassis)
Ladies pram chassis
