Wacky Wheelbarrow Race

New for 2022, Lyme’s funniest, entertaining, crowd-pleasing race, The Wacky Wheelbarrow Race! We’re expecting an evening of ‘wheelie’ great fun with hilarious race action for everyone.

All you need is a partner to enter as a team along with a wheelbarrow, ideally dressed to impress and we’re hoping to see some wacky ideas! Trophies will be awarded on the day for best dressed, not just the quickest teams. The race will start at Cobb Gate Car Park and run along Cart Road, up the challenging slope to Marine Parade with the finish line outside SWIM (400 metres approx). All team individuals will have to switch positions (pusher & driver) at the half way point testing the skills, speed and power of everyone! 

Over 18s only please.

Trophy for 1st place with prizes for 2nd and 3rd place plus a trophy for the best fancy dress / decorated wheelbarrow.

Spectators are encouraged to line the route to cheer on the runners.

Entry costs £5.00 per team of 2.
