Ready, Set, Race, Recycle!
Walking Tree Brewery and Coastal Connections, Inc have teamed up to host the coolest new way to RACE and RECYCLE in Vero Beach. Amateur drivers will take the wheel of their team's homemade derby cars made from 75% recyclable materials fueled by nothing but courage and manpower. Derby cars can range from realistic replica cars to anything the imagination can conjure up and must make it through FIVE challenges along the racecourse. But it is not just about speed. To gain more showmanship points, participants can wear outrageous team costumes, perform a skit or create their own music soundtrack for the race. So, grab your friends and get building your derby cars for the most memorable recycling event of all time.
Race Rules and Regulations: Please read the Race Registration Packet and review registration steps before submitting a team application.
All team registrations are considered a tax-deductible donation and are non-refundable. Funds raised through this event will support Coastal Connections' mission and Vero Goes Zero Initiative.
