Looking for the ultimate race of the festive season? Then look no further as the Great Christmas Pudding Race. This is the 38th year that the race will take over the cobbled streets of Covent Garden. 

About the event

In your team of 6, you'll race around an obstacle course like no other, bouncing over inflatable slides, zooming through foam slaloms and dodging flour filled balloons.

Goodwill to all gets left at home as you compete against other teams for the ultimate glory, being crowned the London Pudding Champions. Not only that; as well as prizes for podium position and best fancy dress, every entrant receives a Christmas pudding and medal.
