Speed Rack, the all-female speed-bartending competition, is happening in Sydney

These bartending women are ready to shake it up (pun intended) at the annual Speed Rack competition, which aims to raise money to fight breast cancer. The very first Speed Rack Australia National Finals competition will be taking place on Sunday, July 29th from 3-7pm at Marble Bar in Sydney!

Speed Rack was created and produced by nationally acclaimed bartenders and industry ambassadors, Lynnette Marrero and Ivy Mix. The nationwide competition is designed to highlight up-and-coming women in the cocktail industry, and give back to those impacted by breast cancer. Speed Rack taps top female bartenders in leading cocktail markets and puts them head-to-head in timed challenges. All for the purpose of raising funds for breast cancer charities, to date Speed Rack has raised more than $850,000 for charities supporting breast cancer research.
