About Us

Braughing's legendary wheelbarrow race!

The Braughing Wheelbarrow Race was started in 1964 and takes place in the picturesque East Hertfordshire village of Braughing.

The race starts and finishes at the village ford. Teams of two push a wheelbarrow round a 400 metre course through the village streets with each person taking turns to push the barrow with the other team member sitting in it.

2020: Race Cancelled

 

Given the current Covid-19 situation, the organisers of the Braughing Fair and Wheelbarrow Race feel it sensible to cancel this year's event.  

You will all know how popular and busy the Wheelbarrow Race is 

and we feel it most unlikely that our event will be permitted 

this year given that social distancing will still be in force.  


Our plans have begun for 2021, so make sure it's in your diary for 10th July 2021. 


Keep safe and well. See you then!
