NORTHWICH KRAZY RACES Back by popular demand IN 2023
10 Aug 2022

In June, Northwich got a little wackier when the popular, free to attend, Krazy
Races soapbox derby event came to town, bringing with it over 15,000 locals
and nearly 20 Krazy teams made up of both local businesses and friends and
family teams.

The free to attend event, created and managed by Sarah Belcher Events LTD,
was brought to Town by Northwich Town Council after the events inaugural
Shrewsbury Krazy Races won Best New Event in the U.K back in 2019.
In the two months since Northwich Krazy Races, calls have grown for the event
to be returned to Northwich. Behind the scenes, Northwich Town Council has
been working extremely hard to make this happen and despite massive
competition from other locations across the country, today Northwich Council
and Sarah Belcher Events are delighted to confirm that an agreement has
been made and Northwich Krazy Races will return to Town on Sunday 16th July

The event will take the same route as this year, with carts zooming down
Castle Hill with an event village and viewing within Verdin Park. Today, team
spaces have opened and after the success of this year's event, organisers are
encouraging teams to get their entries in as early as possible to avoid
disappointment. Organisers are looking for a good mix of between 20-40
teams of both businesses, charities and friends and families to compete.

Sarah Belcher, Founder of Krazy Races said:

“We are over the moon to be coming back to Northwich next year! We
absolutely loved this year's event and two months later we are still buzzing
about the overwhelming positive feedback. We hope that teams and
businesses really get behind this event now they know what it’s all about and
join in the fun. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Chris Shaw and
the team at Northwich Town Council for continuing to back this event, giving
thousands of locals a great free day to remember”

Northwich Town Mayor Cllr Graham Emmett said:

“We always had full confidence in this event after seeing the incredible reviews
from Shrewsbury but this year's Northwich event surpassed our high
expectations and the crowds were phenomenal. Bringing Sarah Belcher Events
and the Krazy Races team back is a no-brainer for us and we hope businesses
come forward to help us make the event an even bigger success than this
