Three Legged Race

Sponsored 3-Legged Race (Fancy dress) in aid of Looe Community Meals

Friday 4th August 2023

Dressing up, going out with your mates and having a few drinks on a Friday night. What is different about that?

Take a look at the picture, this is the start of the three legged race, rushing to get into the Jolly Sailor first, drink the first complementary drink (as chosen by the venue) and set off for the next venue.

There are around ten venues to visit in order where each team must down the drink provided (or pour it over their heads) and move on. Some consider it a race, others spend their time trying to cope with being tied to their partner and trying to walk straight.

Entry costs £5 per participant (£10 per team), every participant must provide acceptable photo ID that proves that they are over 18.

Registration starts at 6:30pm in West Looe Square (West Quay Centre). The race will start at 7:30pm West Looe Square with the first venue being The Jolly Sailor and ending at The Globe.

Three-legged fancy dress Rules and Conditions

All entrants must be 18 or older – ID will be required if we ask for it.

There are 6 race categories: Male, Female, Mixed, Pioneers Male, Pioneers Female, Pioneers Mixed and a prize for best fancy dress. Teams must: use leg ties that are comfortable and easily removed; be joined below the knee; and make sure the joined legs do not move independently during the race.

Visit each pub in order and if you looking to win your race category then get your card marked by pub – IF YOU DON’T HAVE ALL 9 YOU CAN’T WIN. At each pub just ONE of you in each team should have ONE drink. Please note you are not required to drink alcohol – soft drinks or water are available.

ALWAYS do as a marshal instructs you – they are there for your safety. DO NOT take short cuts and keep to the route. Please be respectful and careful of pedestrians and traffic at all times. Failure to adhere to these rules and conditions will result in you being disqualified or required to withdraw from the event. The organisers’ rulings are final.
