Helmets on, team spirit high, arms ready - it is time to take the race to the railway tracks.
The Cummins Community Bank Kalamazoo is on again.
It is the eighth year the 2002 National Can-Do Community has run the Kalamazoo Classic this year to be held on April 8.
In 1999 it won the State Community Event of the Year for Australia Day.
The unique event is fun for participants and spectators alike as hand-pumped railway carts race each other along the railway tracks in Cummins.
Kalamazoo convener Jane Smith said Cummins had a working railway track that passed through the centre of town with the dual tracks perfect for racing.
A kalamazoo is a hand operated rail cart that was originally used by workmen to service the railway tracks.
Now teams of five people race along the tracks in either the 100 metre 'fast and furious' events or the 300 metre classic.
Mrs Smith said it was a day the whole family could enjoy for free.
There was also the craft market, which this year had grown so much it has to be held at two locations the tyre centre and the RSL hall.
The Cummins Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) was also holding a youth week finale with A Day on the Grass II in the railway triangle from 12pm to 10pm with local youth bands and activities.
Teams for the Cummins Community Bank Kalamazoo need to register by the end of the week.
To register contact Cummins and District Enterprise Committee community project officer Carolyn Miller on 8676 2106.
