Island Rec is very excited to announce the fourth running of the now famous Hill of Thrills Soap Box Race on Sunday, May 19. 

This is a classic old-fashioned ‘gravity’ race where people run their homemade, non-motorized contraptions down Grover Street by the elementary school.

The racing categories are ages 5-8, 9-12, 13-15, 16-adult. There are as many adult contestants as youth! This popular event is quickly becoming a local classic not to be missed.

Races go from 1:00 to 3:00 pm. Race packets and applications can be found online or at the office. Register by May 9th for $10.00, price increases by $5.00 thereafter.

For more information or registration visit our website, www.IslandRec.org, call 360-378-4953, or drop by our office, 580 Guard St. Monday – Friday 11:00-5pm.
