Krazy Races, the popular, free to attend national soapbox derby that took Wolverhampton by storm in August last year has confirmed Wolves Foundation, the club’s official charity, as its headline charity partner.

The soapbox derby event will be returning to Wolverhampton on the bank holiday of Monday 28th August. Last year’s event attracted well over 15,000 local spectators and over 20 local teams.

The event sees a mixture of local and business teams build, design and race weird and wacky soapboxes through the centre of towns and cities while raising money for local charities.

Since the event’s creation back in 2018, Krazy Races has raised over £40,000 for local charities and good causes. Every team who enters a soapbox, raises money for a local charity close to their heart, with the event backing a headline charity partner who has a big presence on and leading up to the day.

Kieron Ansell, business development manager at Wolves Foundation, said: “We are delighted to be partnering with Krazy Races for what we are certain will be a fantastic event.

“We work tirelessly to support the communities of Wolverhampton so are extremely grateful to the team at Krazy Races for affording us this opportunity. It will enable us to raise vital funds and continue our important work.

“There will be a big Wolves presence on the day, so we encourage everyone to sign up, enter a team, wear your colours, support your city and have a great day.

“We’ve booked Wolfie his first driving lesson – not sure if he’ll be ready in time but we’ll see!”



Danny Scoffin, head of marketing for Krazy Races; “Our Krazy Races events are all about raising as much money for local charities as possible while giving families a fantastic free day.

“We work closely with our headline charity partner to help integrate them to the heart of the event, giving them as many opportunities as possible to raise as much as they can!

“Our event is all about giving people of all ages a bit of magic and a unique experience. We are delighted to not only have the backing of Wolves Foundation but also the wider club and we are sure teams will want to enter just to support the amazing work the foundation does. We are so excited to be returning to Wolves and I can’t wait to work closely with such an iconic club.”

Wolves Krazy Races will be returning on Monday 28th August. Team spaces are now open but are expected to go fast. For more information visit
