We are delighted to team up with Kelso Races for the fifth time and announce the Borders Barmy Army National Pantomime Horse Race 2014. This event is part of the BBA challenge to run the New York City marathon in aid of the Fire Fighters Charity and to raise vital funds for the BGH Macmillan Cancer Centre.

We are absolutely delighted to annonce the race is being sponsored by R.P. Adam for the 4th time in a row!

This is a very exciting and unique way, not only to support charity, but also to support your local community as we are an official Macmillan committee and we guarantee that Macmillan’s share of this campaign will go to help local people as we have done for the last four years.

This Pantomime Horse race will be taking place on Sunday the 18th of October 2014 and will be Bigger and Better than the year before!

As with last year, we are offering a cash prize for the winning Horses, the Saddle Cloths will be professionally printed by Reiver Embroidery showing sponsors names and logos. We have recruited an official photographer to capture all of the action and the prize giving ceremony! This will be a novel and great way to advertise your business and donate to renowned and deserved charities!
