The Great Wheelbarrow Race is a 3 stage team relay event where competitors push a wheelbarrow from Chillageo to Mareeba along the Wheelbarrow Highway.
Please note this event was originally scheduled for May 12th to 14th 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.
