The 4th annual Creek to Peak Soap Box Derby signups are available through March 1. 

The Derby is presented by Creek to Peak Wear and is scheduled for 10 a.m. on April 18 at Meyer’s Lane.

Registration costs $275 for a group of five competitors. Creek to Peak Wear founder Frank Gazella Jr. said they are lenient on the registration date, but they will cap the number of registered teams at 35.

2020欧洲杯体育官方网站The derby serves as a fundraiser for the Creek to Peak Foundation and a local nonprofit organization. This year they are teaming up with Livingston’s LINKS for Learning. 

2020欧洲杯体育官方网站Gazella said the Creek to Peak Foundation aims to offset some of the expensive costs of ski racing and other outdoor activities for young competitors.

“We also support underprivileged young and upcoming athletes,” he said. “That’s the main objective of the foundation.”

The derby is also working on adding to the event to make it special for competitors and spectators alike, Gazella said.

2020欧洲杯体育官方网站“Right now we’re trying to get a military flyover,” he said. “We’re working with the Montana Air National guard.”

There are rules and regulation for the box cars for safety reasons, Gazella said. 

“They’re kind of loose,” he said. “We want people to have fun so we don’t want to have too many rules, but we also want everyone to be safe.”

You can register and find the rules and regulations online at creektopeakwear.com/derby. More information can also be found on the Creek to Peak Facebook page.
