Resurrected in 2008 after a 12 year break, the Whitchurch Pub Race holds strong in the memories of anyone who has competed this amazing event. Each year around the end of May teams in fancy dress, and linked together by rope, race around all the Town’s public houses. The aim is to raise money for local good causes, have a lot of fun, and of course to enjoy the local beers! This colourful spectacle brings the whole town out to support the participants who are dressed in all manner of magnificent costumes from robots to hula hoop dancers. Of course they could not set off were it not for the town’s Carnival Queen having been chosen, but that’s another one of the many events!
