Upwey Billycart Races

Starting in 2006 as a local initiative to bring life and energy into the town, the races are a not-for-profit community event coordinated by UTG volunteers.


The race is run each year by a core Committee of volunteers ably led by Robin Hosford, Andrew Fullagar and Peter van Santen. Scores of other volunteers from various Upwey community organisations all come together to run the event including the CFA, Scouts, Football and Netball Club, RSL and UTG. 

The event receives major financial support which is crucial to its running. The UTG would like to thank the Dandenong Ranges Community Bank Upwey Branch and Yarra Ranges Council for their continued support and generous sponsorship of the event over the years.

Many local traders, community groups and individuals contribute prizes, expertise and time that is invaluable to the running of the event.
