20 Feb 2024

The return of Krazy Races on Sunday 26th May in Shrewsbury Quarry is now less than 100 days away! To mark the milestone, organisers have released a final 500 ‘Early Bird’ tickets that are expected to sell like KRAZY!

Shrewsbury based events company, Krazy Races, has become the U.K’s largest soapbox derby event after welcoming over 250 teams and 150,000 spectators while raising over £100,000 for different charities in 2023 alone and winning two national awards!.

Now, the Shrewsbury based business, created and managed by Sarah Belcher Events, have decided to return HOME to Shrewsbury Quarry, to mark the company's 5th anniversary.  

Shrewsbury Krazy Races will take place on Sunday 26th May 2024 at Shrewsbury Quarry with the event promising to be bigger and better than ever before. The exact race route in the quarry has been kept under wraps but organisers have teased that the route is brand new from previous years and will be longer and steeper than before.  The event route will be made up of chicanes, obstacles and more with racers expected to be cheered on by thousands of locals. 

As well as fantastic races, Krazy Races will be working with local sponsors and businesses to bring together local entertainers, food stalls, cars and more to give families a fantastic day to remember. Last month two headline charities; SYA- all about Youth and Headways Shropshire were selected as the event's official headline charities, with both promising to bring something special to the event. 

Sarah Belcher, Founder of Krazy Races said:

“We are beyond excited to be returning to Shrewsbury to celebrate where it all started 5 years ago. We have travelled to amazing locations across the country and worked with some fantastic teams but there is something really special about putting an event on in your home-town. We have been inundated with both previous teams and spectators asking us to return so we are over the moon to finally be able to say we are back! ”  

“The event will be a real ‘feel good’ celebration, filled with surprises and fun. We are challenging our teams to be the best we have ever seen which will not be an easy task.” 

Applications for teams to enter are open but are expected to close soon. Organisers are looking for between 20-40 teams to enter the race in a knockout style competition with multiple trophies. 

Organisers are encouraging spectators to take advantage of the Early Bird Price before they sell out  with an additional 500 Early Bird tickets being released this week to mark the 100 days.
