The Great Christmas Pudding Race in Covent Garden – The Results

“After bringing in a victory in our heat we came a respectable third in the final” – Ian the handsome turkey

Pudding Race Finish

This year saw the 34th Great Christmas Pudding Race in Covent Garden in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Covent Garden played host the 34th annual Great Christmas Pudding Race on Saturday, 6th December 2014.

The event was organised by CRAC on behalf of Cancer Research UK and supported by Fox’s and Covent Garden Market.

A team event and there’s only one rule but it’s strictly enforced: competitors in fancy dress must carry a Christmas pudding at all times.

Elite Pudding Team

This year Rohan have mustered an elite team to compete for the coveted trophy. The fancy dress costume has been decided and will see Ian Palmer dressed as a giant turkey being chased around the foam slalom course by Kate, Jose, Amba and Fozia from Rohan Covent Garden led by area manager, Richard Morrison, dressed as chefs.
