Great Dunmow Soapbox Race – May

We’re the second largest soapbox race in the UK after Red Bull!

The Great Dunmow Soapbox Race will take place on Sunday, 24th May 2020, bigger and better than ever! With over 700 people already on our waiting list, this year promises to maintain its title of the second largest soapbox race in the United Kingdom raising money for some fantastic charities (last year we raised £40,000 for charity!).

The teams will face jumps, the slippery, blizzard ally, and will race against the clock to be crowned the winner of the Great Dunmow Soapbox Race 2020. Expect to see incredible hand-built soapboxes, spectacular crashes, and some brilliant obstacles all raising money for phenomenal local causes and charities.
