The current edition of this event is on 18 to 20 May 2018.
The Great Wheelbarrow Race is a 3 stage team relay event from Friday, 19 May to Sunday, 21 May 2017 where competitors push a wheelbarrow from Chillageo to Mareeba along the Wheelbarrow Highway.
Please note this event was originally scheduled for 12 to 14 May but had to be rescheduled due to a clash with other events within the Shire.
The event changes direction for the first time; after 13 years of running from Mareeba to Chillagoe, competitors will race from Chillagoe to Mareeba in 2017.
Teams can have two to ten members, but they must all be able to fit legally in a single vehicle along with a race marshall. There is also a solo category for individual runners.
