The first Barrow Super Soapbox Challenge event, sponsored by BAE Systems is fast approaching. The races will be held on Saturday 29th June 2019 from 10.00am along Dalton Road in Barrow Town Centre and entry to watch the racing is absolutely FREE.
Barrow-in-Furness is well known for its engineering excellence and community spirit, which is why we bring you The Barrow Super Soapbox Challenge. This community event is brought to you by Barrow BID in conjunction with The Super Soapbox Challenge Company Limited, a professional organiser of soapbox races in the UK.
The aim of this event is to raise money for local charities and create a fun day in Barrow town centre for all the teams, supporters and spectators. ‘Fun’ and ‘Themed’ Soapboxes are especially encouraged since they are the most interesting to watch!
There is still time to enter a soapbox, but you will have to be quick to build one or find a used soapbox to buy and create your own themed design. BAE Systems (Main Sponsors) have come on board and are supplementing the entry fee, so it is now £200 for businesses to enter and £100 for; charities, individuals, armed forces and BID levy payers.
