Greenfield Soapbox Race Info

Racers will start at the top of Nash Mill Road hill, right where it meets with Leyden Road. The course is a little over a 1/4 mile long, and adult racers can expect speeds of up about 35 MPH or more, depending on wheels and aerodynamics. The final straightaway will be lined with chearing fans, and vendors. There will be announcers on a platform overlooking the track near the finish line.
