Wheelbarrow Race

SATURDAY 16TH JUNE 2018

Wheelbarrow Race - an evening not to be missed!

Wheelbarrow Race 1976

 

One of the highlights of our 2018 Festival, is the annual Wheelbarrow Race. This is now well established as fabulous entertainment. The speed event will once again be a separate race, with the fancy dress competition for best dressed barrow following after.


This is the most fun sporting event of the year and the fastest pub-crawl in history! 

So bring your kids, aunties, uncles, grannies etc because there is lots for everyone to see. 
 

Our local Kington Fire-Fighters will conduct a blanket collection during the evening, so please remember to bring your loose change and show support for YOUR Festival !!

 

Those of you who are entering the races, get together with your friends to start designing and building your wheelbarrow. Don't forget your costume - there are prizes for the best decorated wheelbarrow!

All wheelbarrow contestants should assemble for registration at 18:00 ready for judging at 18:30 at the Primary School Playground and then move up to The Square ready for the start.

ALL PARTICIPANTS MUST BE OVER 18 YEARS OLD!


N.B. Pedal Power is acceptable, but NO motorised barrows or animal-drawn barrows please!

The winner of the "Best over all entertainment value of the evening" will receive the HEDLEY SIMCOCKS TROPHY, presented by Sharon, Mark and family.
