Outhouse Racing is a fun and hilarious race event where teams of four to five members create their own outhouses and race them down Main Street in Imlay City.  An outhouse is a small, enclosed structure that has one or two holes in a seat inside the structure. The outhouses made for the race are man-powered with a team of 5.  1 person to ride in the outhouse and 4 pushing or pulling the outhouse. The person riding is not allowed to help in any way in the motion of the outhouse.  The rider must also wear a helmet.  These are encouraged to be decorated and the only requirement with that is it has to be Kid friendly and no vulgar or offensive language.
