Shitbox Rally, the national charity event where teams of two tackle Australia’s dustiest outback roads in cars worth less than $1k (aka shitboxes) to raise money for Cancer Council, has announced its 2019 dates.

The 2019 route will start in Perth on May 8 and finish in Sydney on May 17, travelling via the iconic Uluru. Previous rallies have always been seven days, making this the first ever ten-day experience to mark the tenth anniversary of the rally.

“It’s the longest rally in Shitbox history,” said James Freeman, who founded the event in 2009.

“We are not staying on the same latitude so there will still be significant variation in terrain, and there will still be a number of surprises for the teams.”

Registrations are now open via www.shitboxrally.com.au for those who have received email notification.
