How it works

The race

Your team will take part in a relay obstacle Race around the Piazza of Covent Garden. Obstacles include inflatables, a crazy foam slalom, decorating a Christmas Tree, completing a jigsaw and many other challenges. There will be race heats and then the winning team and runners up from each heat will compete in the Grand Final. Between the races teams will enjoy festive entertainment, including a Zumba warm up to get everyone ready to race!

Enter a team

Gather a team of 4 people, this could be work colleagues, friends, school mates or family and enter a team through the website.

This is a great team building experience whilst raising money for a good cause There is a small registration fee which is to help cover the costs of putting on this fantastic event.

We offer an ‘Early Pud’ discount for those teams who register before midnight on Sunday 25th October 2020.

Once you have signed up and paid your registration fee, you will receive your Pudding Pack giving full details of the Race, together with a link to our dedicated Just Giving site so you can set up your team page and start fund raising.


We ask each team to raise a minimum of £600 to help support the vital work of Cancer Research UK.

When you break this down, its just over £150 per person. There are many ways to raise money through fundraising and sponsorship activities. You could organise a bake sale at work, or pack bags at your local super market for donations. You can even ask your work if they can offer corporate matching for any money you raise.

Fancy dress

Each team is asked to come in fancy dress. Over the years we have seen some amazing fancy dress costumes, from a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings, to mobile phones! The more creative the better – and don’t forget there is a prize for the team with the best fancy dress!
