The Great Wheelbarrow Race

Highlights from the McDonald's Great Wheelbarrow Race 2018 - 140 kms Chillagoe to Mareeba

On the third weekend in May, Mareeba Shire Council is the host to the ‘Great Wheelbarrow Race’.

This is an event where competitors push an empty wheelbarrow along the ‘Wheelbarrow Way’ between Mareeba and Chillagoe in three stages.

The 2018 event smashed the $2M mark raising funds for charity since the race began.

Here are the highlights from the 3 day event.
