© Livingston Round Table 2019



Livingston Round Table is to host the first ever Soapbox Race this August. We are expecting over 40 teams who will battle it out to be crowned champion of the Livingston Soapbox Race on Sunday 30th August 2020. You will expect to see jumps, near misses and some spectacular crashes all to raise money for incredible causes.

Initial indications are that crowds of up to 5,500 people will be cheering on the 40 courageous teams, who will race against the clock to be in with the chance of winning first prize. Within 1 day of it's launch, Social Media interest has already reached over 9,500 people showing an interest in attending the Livingston Soapbox Race event.

The Livingston Soapbox Race is organised by Livingston Round Table, a charity made up of men aged 18 - 45 who voluntarily hold fundraising events for charities and good causes including schools, clubs, and individuals who need a helping hand. Over the past 10 years, the charity has raised over £100,000 for the local community through events such as fireworks night, Santa’s sleigh and the Beer Festival. 

The inaugural year of Livingston's Soapbox Race will be one of the biggest and best in Scotland with challenging obstacles, a fast course, and maybe a water-based jump.  We are in the process of securing a giant screen to broadcast the races to enhance the entertainment and make sure everyone can see all the thrills and spills.  This event really is family entertainment for people of all ages. The event will operate on a donation basis for spectators making it a brilliant family day out like no other. It will simply be a must-see event.


The Livingston Soapbox Race organisers are looking for daring schools, businesses, clubs and members of the public to take part in the 2020 event. If you think you have what it takes, early-bird entry is open until the 16th of August, 2020. Early-bird entry costs £40 per team of four and entry is through the 'Enter a Team' Tab on this website.
