Those in a post Christmas party haze take comfort - you didn’t just imagine a host of wide-eyed pantomime horses, superheroes and a red nosed reindeer cantering around Greenwich .

The eclectic mix of everything from a tribute to Catwoman to zoo animals and The Incredible Sulk were the runners and riders in fancy dress fundraiser-come-pub-crawl the London Pantomime Horse Race .

It returned to the town for its sixth year on Sunday, December 13, with The Superheroes Edition as its theme.

Comedian Steve Frost livened up the crowds before competitors were waved off by Catwoman at Devonport House.

Then followed five short races – with pub pit-stops in between – to keep competitors well hydrated.

Event organiser Mark Biddis believes the 2015 showcase was the craziest yet.

Racegoers donated more than £1,000 on the day while a further £1,600 has been collected online, all in aid of The Demelza Hospice for Children.

“We hope to reach £3,000 this year, which will make months of work by plenty of people really worthwhile,” said Mark.

“On top of the money the event always creates such a good atmosphere which is also very special to me.”
