Once again the Poulters organised this prestige event held at the Guildhall, this year the weather was kind and the sun shone all morning, although it was a bit windy!
30 full Livery teams took part with an additional 11 Masters running in the Masters Qualifying Race. As ever the runners were very competitive and the standard was high, we even had our first wheelchair participant.
- Masters Race – Framework Knitters
- Liveryman Race – Insurers
- Ladies Race – Constructors
- Novelty Race – Framework Knitters
- Victor Ludorum – Framework Knitters
- Winner of the Fancy Dress Competition – Fuellers
This year we had new caterers, The Clink https://theclinkcharity.org/ who I am pleased to say are happy to be involved again next year, thank you to Lizzie and Johny and all the team.
Also as ever many thanks to Glovers, Fruiterers, Gunmakers and Clockmakers for their continued support and contribution to making this event so successful.
Finally I would like to thank Court Assistant Liz Garner for organising the event for the third year, ably assisted by Liveryman Alex Brooker and myself, plus our volunteer of stewards on the day!
An excellent £4,500 was raised from the event, which is split between the Lord Mayor’s Charities and the Master Poulters Pelican Trust.
Here’s to next year’s event on the 25th February, hope you are all in training!
