The 42nd Sedan Chair Race, organised by the Sedan Chair Charities Fund (SCCF), will be held at The Matilda International Hospital on Mount Kellett Road of the Peak on 30th October 2016 (Sunday). This year, SCCF invites race teams to join the charity selection process by selecting the charities or category they wish to support from a preapproved list of local small charities. This exciting race provides teambuilding opportunities for corporations, schools and organisations, as well as being an amazing time for spectators to enjoy an entertaining morning with wonderful live music, good food and games, all on a beautiful heritage site.
The Sedan Chair Race is now open for registration. Race teams consist of 8 runners and 1 passenger, racing along a 2.1km route along the Peak carrying a sedan chair in support of lesser known charities that have very limited resources to do fundraising themselves. The race is a fun and meaningful event, filled with colourful costumes, elaborate chair designs, where runners with a need for speed can feel opt for a greater challenge.
