This would be the perfect race to film in slow motion. On Sunday, July 28, mascots of local businesses and organizations will go head-to-head at the 5th annual Hastings Racecourse Mascot Derby!
The race itself is quite self-explanatory, but it benefits Variety-The Children’s Charity and will mark the fifth anniversary of the fun corporate race. The mascots will race in multiple heats for a chance to qualify for the Mascot Derby Title finals held later in the afternoon.
There will also be a live DJ, prizes, and food and beverage specials. This family-friendly event is FREE for spectators and will be a part of the racecourse’s regular Sunday races.
