Race Registration is now open!

We are now accepting entries to the 2020 race on 6th September.

We are hopeful that the current corona virus lockdown restrictions will have been lifted in time for us to run this years soap box derby which is scheduled to take place on Sunday 6th September. As such we are now accepting registrations from any teams that plan to take part.

The 2020 derby will follow the same format as the 2019 event. There will be 3 races on the day, two childrens races and the adult race. The first childrens race is for children aged 4 –7 or 8-11, these must have a responsible adult accompanying them throughout the race. The second childrens race is for children aged 12-15, they will complete two circuits of the childrens race route and do not require an adult to run with them.

The adults race has three categories: aged 16+, elite and veterans (55+). The elite category is for teams that have previously, or predict they will, complete the 1.4 mile race route in less than 10 minutes. Please ensure ages on the day are as per the general rules,

Both races will start at the John Barleycorn with the childrens race starting at 12 pm and the adults race at 1 pm.
