Eastbourne Seafront Soapbox Race is moving from Easter Monday to September.

The new event take place in Eastbourne where participants are encouraged to build their own soapbox in order to race each other along the seafront.

The race will take place on Dukes Drive and finish at Helen Gardens.

Organisers now say: “We can’t wait to host the first ever Eastbourne Seafront Soapbox Race and are committed to ensuring it is the best event it can be.

As we have amassed a wonderful following of soapbox fans we have made the decision to postpone the Eastbourne Seafront Soapbox Race until 26 September 2021.

This decision has been made to ensure as many fans as possible are able to attend in a safe way, allowing us to launch this inaugural event with the celebration it deserves!

All entries will be carried forward to the new date, allowing contestants the opportunity to continue perfecting their creations and racing tactics ready for the big day.”
