The York Bid Micklegate Soapbox Challenge

Mon Aug 26 @ 11.00 am - 5.00 pm


The Countdown is on to York’s Wackiest Race…

The York Bid Micklegate Soapbox Challenge takes place on 26th August – Bank Holiday Monday. This family friendly event is an action-packed day out, spectators can look forward to a host of homemade carts hurtling their way down the cobbles of York’s Best Street at breakneck speeds! The race begins at 11 am, with the champions crowned at 5pm. Although getting there earlier for a good view is highly recommended.

Who will take home the title this year… will the York charity SASH be able to hold onto their championship title? Everyone is in it to win it… national brands such as Nestle always put on a great show, or could a local business such as York Digital Image (former winners)- be back in poll position?

Minster FM will be on hand to guide you the through the day’s events, plus Live Music, Fairground Rides & a Super-Car Exhibit with Food & Drink from the likes of The Whippet Inn, Micklegate Social, Old Siam, and many many more.
