The Great
Cochrane Outhouse Races

The Details


The Cochrane Outhouse Races take place in historic downtown Cochrane in late summer, where teams from local businesses and organizations push home made outhouse - race carts down First Street,  chuck wagon-style.​

All outhouses are to have a toilet inside, four people from the team will push and a fifth that rides on the “throne” inside.​ However creative you want to get with those basic rules is up to you! We welcome any and all interpretations and the crowd delights in seeing what our local business & philanthropic organizations come up with to take part in this fun event. 

To register, each team contributes a donation and the cheques will be presented and recognized during the event.​ All proceeds are collected by the Rocky Mountain Rotary Club and are donated in full to organizations in need within our community. The benefactor each year is announced in advance of the event and recognized at the event itself. ​

The generosity of our community is remarkable and this event is no exception. It's quirky nature draws visitors from far and wide and is always sure to bring a laugh and the friendly competition out of us all. Join us next year! Dates to be announced in early 2024.
