Back by popular demand, people are invited to channel their inner Dick Dastardly or Penelope Pitstop and compete in the Wacky Races. Sponsored by the Gentleman Baristas and supported by hundreds of spectators, this year’s contest covers egg and spoon and space hopper races, a snorkeling kit race, ‘real’ wheelbarrow race, tug-o-war, and two-person game, Knock Your Block Off.

You can also practice your skills in advance – on the afternoon of Wednesday, 16 May from 4pm during the official opening event of the Marlborough Sports Garden.
