The Outhouse races are one of Cochrane’s most unique family entertainment events. Hosted by the Heavenly Outhouse, the outhouse races are a fund-raising opportunity for the local Cochrane businesses to support the Cochrane Activettes and to have some real fun! Business teams of four pull their “outhouse” and a fifth person who has to sit on the thrown, down the street in a timed heat. Racing against one another for the fastest leg and sporting their best costumes, the teams compete for the two coveted prizes: the fastest team trophy and the best costume trophy.

This year we had a Candyland themed potty with all of the Candyland characters giving out lots of candy to local supporters. Our outhouse was named “Best Costume” for the second year running.
