Via Danny for Krazy Races
Birmingham and Sandwell will get a little wackier next year as Krazy Races comes to town on Sunday 10th July. Krazy Races is a free to attend event, aiming to bring all manner of races, wild and zany to towns and cities across the UK and beyond in the form of a traditional SoapBox Derby. As well as Birmingham and Sandwell, The Krazy Races team have today announced events happening in Northwich Cheshire, Shrewsbury and Wolverhampton on Sunday 21st August.
Birmingham and Sandwell Krazy Races is the first event of its kind to be held in the City. The event will be held at Sandwell Valley Country Park. Birmingham and Sandwell Krazy Races will see Sarah Belcher Events Company supporting Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.
Thousands of spectators are expected from all over the City and beyond to cheer on the weird, wacky and wonderful SoapBox entrants who can enjoy watching carefully crafted karts being hurtled down a track which will consist of chicanes, obstacles, water features and more.
Applications for teams to enter have opened today with event organisers looking for 40-60 teams to enter the race in a knockout style competition with trophies going to ‘fastest winner’, ‘best dressed’, ‘most innovative design’ and more.
Sarah Belcher, Founder of Krazy Races said:
After a challenging couple of years for everyone, we are delighted to be bringing some much-needed laughs and joy to the great people of Sandwell and Birmingham! There will be more fun than you can imagine, Krazy entertainment and lots of ‘wow, did they really just do that!?
We are over the moon to be supporting the fantastic Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity. This event is sure to capture the imaginations of the community and business in the area and together we can create a spectacular, unique and different event for the town.”
Miranda Williams, Head of Public Fundraising at Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity, said:
We’re so thankful to be chosen as the charity partner for the Birmingham and Sandwell race. We treat over 90,000 sick kids at our hospital every year, the majority of whom are from the local area, so we’ll be excited to see the teams come together to support our vital service. This is such a fun event for us to be involved with and we can’t wait to see the imaginative, ‘krazy’ designs people come up with.”
