THE 27th Annual

Bogie Race 



What's not to love? Besides the usual camping antics, contestants come from all over the UK to attempt to win The Bogie Race. Men & women hurtling down a field on their own custom built traditional made bogies.


Now we're not saying go find an old fashioned pushchair, nab the wheels and make one, but if you have never attended this meet your missing out.

The construction can be made from wood and or metal but adopting the traditional idea of bogie building, namely a form of transport made in the backyard using anything you can lay your hands on, some screws, nails, a piece of rope and 4 wheels.  It is up to the individual to develop the construction but seriously, we are looking for traditional design with few mod cons and not an F1 model.



It should be designed to carry one person.
