Rushden's Soap Box Derby 2023

Soap Box Derby 2023 – 4 June, 2023

As the sun rose on Sunday morning, volunteers, councillors and members of the council assembled to set up Hall Park's legendary race track and facilities.

Barriers were lined up, straw bales were placed and safety checks were made to ensure public safety.

Competitors and their soapbox carts arrived and Rushden welcomed another exciting Soap Box Derby event in the picturesque grounds of Hall Park.

Spectators appeared in their droves, ice creams were eaten, food stalls were inundated whilst competitors lined up to take on the downhill challenge.

An impressive array of hand-built soapbox's took their marks and descended the legendary track to the delight of the crowd. Lots of cheering and plenty of smiles pushed the carts along.

The day culminated with a prize giving ceremony with trophies awarded for each category.

This event would not be possible without the support of volunteers and councillors and the sponsorship of King Tools.
