Seafront Soapbox Race

About

2023 sees the return of the popular Seafront Soapbox Race after two successful years!

Participants are encouraged to build their own soapbox in order to race each other along the seafront. The race will take place on Dukes Drive and finish at Helen Gardens.

Spectators are able to watch these wacky creations as they hilariously whizz around corners with the hope of staying in one piece by the time they reach the finish line! Cash prizes will be up for grabs for the fastest soap box and the wackiest creation.

Calling all spectators! You will be delighted to know this is a free to watch event and the day is sure to be a great spectacle. The course is just under 350m long and will contain various jumps, crazy bends and hay-bale chicanes, not to mention the wacky outfits and soapboxes on display!
