On your marks ... get set, goo-gah!
IT IS a tradition that dates back 90 years.
And pram-racers in Hessle Road didn't let the side down this year.
Hundreds lined the streets for the annual event, which sees teams of two compete.
Colourful prams of all shapes and sizes lined up for their chance to pip the opposition.

And, as usual, spectators were vociferous in their support.
Peggy Borthwick, 85, was born in west Hull but has since moved to the east of the city.
She said: "I think it's great, I come every year. I always like to come when they have any fishing heritage things on, too."
The day began with a parade led by Rachael Duff, one of Hull's Olympic torch- bearers.
She was followed by a parade of rescue dogs, majorettes and pram contestants.
Youngsters from Hull Boys' Club also walked down the route, dressed as a giant centipede.
The crowds were greeted by Hessle Roader and Hull FC legend, Johnny Whiteley.
He said: "I was born and raised in Scarborough Street, my father was a fisherman.
"I have been proud of Hessle Road all my life."
Mr Whiteley then started the heats for the pram race.
Each heat involved three prams going head-to-head starting at the Yorkshire Bank and finishing at Raynors Pub.
Andy Giggal, 42, and Artur Szczotka, 25, were running for the Minerva Social Enterprise.
Andy, dressed as Tigger, was in the pram.
He said: "It is about having fun, we should be doing more of it. And I love dressing up.
"It was ace doing the run, I want to do it again.
"The pram was precarious and it felt like we were going really fast."
Kerry Patten was running, with Rachel Croft in the pram.
The duo, of Regal Fisheries in Hessle Road, were one of a number of racers to take a tumble.
Rachel said: "I was crying with laughter. I was expecting it, to be honest. We did the race for a laugh and it raises a bit of money."
Tracey Henry, of the Hessle Road Pram Race Trust, said it ran the event to keep the history of Hessle Road alive.
She said: "It brings the community together for the day and keeps the history of Hessle Road.
"It is a great atmosphere and it shows off what Hessle Road is all about."
Gavin Haigh was watching the races with son Oliver, 10.
His other son Harrison, 8, was in one of the races.
Gavin said: "He won his heat. He was smiling and really laidback.
"We had to go and get him all the protective gear in case he fell out."
Harrison was also watched by cousin Phoebe Taylor, 7, and their grandma Sandra Bilton.
Racers Laura Anderson and Ellie-Mae Murray, 10, were celebrating after coming second in their heat.
They were representing the Hessle Road Network.
Laura said: "It was really, really amazing. We thought we would crash but didn't and came second."
Ellie-Mae said: "I was scared, I thought I was going to fall out."
The race was won by a team from Asda.
