National Sedan Chair Rally 2016


About the National Sedan Chair Rally

The National Sedan Chair Rally is an event that’s been running since 1966 and is now held at PACCAR Scout Camp. It’s an action packed weekend culminating in the Main Race on Sunday.

The aim is to build and race your own unique Sedan Chair over a course around the acres of woodland at PACCAR. There are prizes in several categories from Best Designed Chair and Best Dressed Team through to the fastest completion of the course.

There will be workshops on site to help you build your chair; you can just as well bring your chair with you built in advance. Tips on building your chair can be found on the Website

In addition to activities and workshops around building and racing your Chair there will be a load of activities going on throughout the weekend, Climbing / Crate Stacking, High Ropes etc, and competitions in other activities such as Rifle Shooting & Archery with Prizes being awarded.

There is a fully catered option available so you won’t even need to cook or wash up!
