Schools and Charities

The event is a great opportunity to increase awareness of your local charity or raise funds for your school or charitable organisation. Schools and charities can enter individually, however, we will also encourage local businesses to team up with schools and charities where possible and we would be happy to promote any schools or charities who are looking for a local company to partner with, simply send your details to: manager@barrowbid.co.uk 

Please let us know who you are raising money for when you complete your application form as this will help us to partner up companies who do not have a school or charity partner already. You may also be required to show proof of your fundraising efforts prior to the race.

Schools, please be aware that all participants on the track must be aged 16 or over on 28th June 2019 and the driver must be 21 or over for insurance purposes.

A great day out for all the family

Come along and cheer on your favourite team! You won’t miss a thing as there’ll be continual commentary with all the action visible on large format screens. As well as the excitement on the course itself, there’ll be a funfair, live music and lots of food and drink concessions to choose from. Don’t forget, for spectators, this is a FREE community event so you really have no excuse not to be there!
