Jodie and Soda’s baby race

It all started as a fun idea to find Adelaide’s fastest baby and by Thursday it had become perhaps the craziest, but brilliant, event Mix 102.3’s Jodie & Soda have ever hosted.
Five babies aged under 12 months, all unable to walk, were handpicked from hundreds of entrants for the one-off race.
The babies had an official ‘weigh in’ and a warm-up crawl, Ricki Lee sang the national anthem via a live cross from Sydney and Channel 7’s acclaimed race caller John Casey hollered “let’s get ready to wriggle” and it was race time.
No-one had any idea what was going to happen when the air horn fired starting the race.
Each baby had a parent or loved one strategically positioned at the start and finish of the racetrack to entice their baby to the finish line. Parents were equipped with all sorts of bribing devices to get their baby to the finish – there were remote controls, a chocolate cake, balloons, iPhones, a keyboard, a teddy, and lots of car keys!
In the end the winner was Little Miss Magic, ten-month-old Abigail, who blitzed her way to the finish line in what had to be a world record time.
Abigail took home a massive $5,000 to spend on BONDS gear, thanks to BONDS, and second and third place winners received a $500 Westfield vouchers.
