The Milton Keynes Soapbox Derby is back for 2019!

The news is officially out - the ‘MK Soapbox Derby 2019 with MyMiltonKeynes’ is returning this year on Saturday 8 June. The day will take place once again in Central Milton Keynes, along a 200m course on Midsummer Boulevard, all raising money for Milton Keynes Hospital Charity Cancer Centre Appeal.

Last year’s inaugural event saw some of the most amazing soapbox karts hurtle down the iconic Midsummer Boulevard, with thousands of spectators cheering them along the route. But this year, it’s going to be even bigger and better. With a new headline sponsor for the event, MyMiltonKeynes, there will be live entertainment between the races. This year also sees more prizes up for grabs, while the soapbox launch ramp will be three times as big as last year.

As in 2018, there will be three race categories; Junior, Adult and Business & Company. But this year instead of just speed – judges will also be looking at creativity and showmanship before awarding the prizes. You can find all the entry details including the soapbox specification requirements at www.mksoapbox.co.uk – meaning you can get your thinking caps on and start building the fastest, most creative soapbox you can!

The event is totally free for spectators, and you can line the route and enjoy the atmosphere for a whole day of races starting from 10am. The event is organised by Milton Keynes Council, Ringway MK, MK21 and MyMiltonKeynes.
