Known Soapbox Races in the UK and Ireland
I've compiled a google map of all of the soapbox races I know about in the UK and Ireland. At the moment, I've found
25 nearly 50, mostly through googling for "uk soapbox" and associated terms.
Community soapbox races, by their very nature, tend to be transient events. They typically take place only for about 3 or 4 years. This can make it difficult to keep an up to date map of current races. If you are looking for an upcoming event, check out the soapbox race calendar, which list all the known races in the UK.
Nearly all of the events are community based and focus on fun and themed/novelty carts. There are massive variations in the rules, with one race featuring a water section where the carts have to be rowed !
The map is shown below. If you have any additions, updates, clarifications or corrections please let us know.
For further details on individual events, please click on the markers in the map below. Please note that nearly all of the races are not connected with the SCA in any way. For entry details etc, please contact the race organisers directly.
