Consecon Soap Box Derby 2014

Part of the Consecon Community Day festivities

Date: Saturday August 2, 2014
Location: Mill Street hill in Consecon
Derby Begins: 1:00 pm.
Registration Begins: 12 noon and will take place at the intersection of Consecon Main and County Road 29 (Free)
For More Information Contact: Bill McMahon, 613.394.9914,

The Soap Box Derby is open to both girls and boys age 5 years through 12 years, there are no registration fees required to take part. Competitors are grouped into three separate age categories, 5 and 6 year olds, 7 years through 9 years, 10 years through 12 years.

Competitors will make individual runs down the hill for best times, (not racing against each other head to head). Fastest overall time in each category will determine the age group winner. Helmets are mandatory for all competitors and all Soap Box cars must have a braking mechanism installed, otherwise the cars will be considered ineligible to compete in the event.

This annual event has grown significantly since our first derby in 2011 when we entertained some 20 participants, to last year’s 43 entrants. We attract kids from the County, Trenton, Belleville, Brighton, Kingston as well as Ottawa and Toronto.

All safety precautions will be in place and St. John Ambulance will be in attendance during the event.

Following the children’s event we’ll hold a senior’s run for anyone 13 years or older who’d love to have an opportunity to see how they stack up against the kids. The same safety precautions apply.
