Despite team numbers being down from last year, the thirteenth annual Great Wheelbarrow Race which finished on Sunday, raised over $200,000 for local, national and international charities.

Organising committee chair Councillor Nipper Brown said the event was again, a great success. “I believe it went really well overall. Once again we have managed to raise significant amounts for charity,” he said. “The support from the general public was unbelievable again and the small town reception was great as always.”

The three day event saw people of all ages push a Wheelbarrow 140 km from Mareeba to Chillagoe, honouring the early pioneers and their amazing trail-blazing feats. There were 42 teams in this year’s race and Cr Nipper Brown said “I take my hat off to them.” “Once again they showed what human spirit is. The camaraderie, the courtesy they showed to each other and the support they gave to one another all along the race was unbelievable.”

This year there were two additional categories to the race; over 35’s and over 55’s. The Boys from the Bush took home the shield and also won the men’s category.St Joseph’s Nudgee College from Brisbane competed in the race for the second consecutive year, breaking their record by a remarkable 12 minutes. Nudgee School Captain Angus McHugh said they will be back in 2017 and hopes the event becomes a tradition of the College. “After last year we found the race was a great experience and donating to charities is such a great cause,” he said “It’s a fantastic atmosphere and gets the community together and raises money which is great.”

Cr Nipper Brown thanked all of the competitors, their support teams, event volunteers and the organising committee. “Much of the preparation goes unseen but this weekend has shown the benefits of all the training, planning and organisation that has consumed so much time in the preceding weeks and months,” he said.
“The event will be back in 2017, bigger and better and there may be some changes.”

Great Wheelbarrow Race 2015 Results

The twelfth annual Great Wheelbarrow Race which finished on Sunday has raised a jaw-dropping $243,300 for charity, making the total raised in the past two years well over the one million dollar mark.

“That is a magnificent result and a great effort. The event is unique in that it benefits all the communities along the Wheelbarrow Way, while catering to so many different charities,” organising committee chairman Councillor Nipper Brown said.

“We had 54 teams enter this year, and added a social category, which had ten teams enter. When we totalled up the funds raised, again we were blown away by the outcome.”

“And the icing on the cake is that this year’s event was conducted in high spirits by everyone who took part and everyone pulled up pretty healthy in the end.”

Councillor Brown said the three-day event, which took competitors from Mareeba to Chillagoe in the footsteps of the district’s pioneers, had set an extremely high benchmark.

“Even the weather held out,” he said.

The competitive side of the event saw outstanding efforts turned in..

“We had records set all over the place. In the overall category the Bad Boys broke the overall record by 49 minutes, coming in to Chillagoe in 6hrs.25mins.44sec,” he said.

“The High school category record was broken by Nudgee College in a time of 7hrs.08mins.45sec, averaging a cracking 20 kilometres per hour and breaking the record by 11 minutes,” Cr Brown said.

I have to commend all of the competitors, their support teams, event volunteers and the organising committee.”

“Much of the preparation goes unseen but this weekend has shown the benefits of all the training, planning and organisation that has consumed so much time in the preceding weeks and months.”

“Dimbulah has a small population but on the Friday night they had more than 1000 people stay there. And then on Saturday night Almaden, with a population measured in two digits, had a similar population explosion,” he said.

“The benchmark has now been set at a very high level for next year’s race but I am sure the region is up to the challenge,” Cr Brown said.

A DVD of this year’s massive event is in production and will be available for purchase shortly from Studio Productions in Cairns.

THE eleventh annual Great Wheelbarrow Race which finished on Sunday has raised a jaw-dropping $433,000 for charity, making the total raised in the past two years just under the one million dollar mark.

 

“That is a stunning result and a great effort,” organising committee chairman Councillor Nipper Brown said.

 

“We had a record-breaking number of teams enter, with 74 teams this year, and we had records set all over the place in the race itself and then, when we totalled up the funds raised, again we were blown away by the outcome.”

 

“And the icing on the cake is that this year’s event was conducted in high spirits by everyone who took part and everyone pulled up pretty healthy in the end.”

 

Councillor Brown said the three-day event, which took competitors from Mareeba to Chillagoe in the footsteps of the district’s pioneers, had set an extremely high benchmark.

 

“Even the weather held out,” he said.

 

The competitive side of the event saw outstanding efforts turned in, with three records broken.

 

“In the solo female category (a new category this year, although there have been solo female participants) Sonya Alba-Miller smashed the existing record, pushing her wheelbarrow across 140 kilometres in just 18 hours, 23minutes and 22 seconds. Jenny Hoskins who also competed in the solo female category, was the youngest solo to compete in the race and did an outstanding job, even crossing the finish line with a smile on her face.”

 

“The duo category record was broken by The Lonely Jokers in a time of 10hrs.53mins.30sec, averaging a cracking 18 kilometres per hour.

The Over 40s record fell to 72 model  in a time of 9hrs.03mins.59sec.

Great Wheelbarrow Race has

record-shattering 10th anniversary

 

THE tenth anniversary Great Wheelbarrow Race which finished on Sunday has raised a jaw-dropping $461,000.10 for charity.

“That is a stunning result and just blows away the previous record of $153,000.” organising committee chairman and TRC deputy mayor Councillor Evan McGrath said.

“We had a record-breaking number of teams enter, we had records set all over the place in the race itself and then, when we totalled up the funds raised, we set this fantastic record.

“And the icing on the cake is that this year’s event was conducted in high spirits by everyone who took part.”

 

Councillor McGrath said the three-day event, which took competitors from Mareeba to Chillagoe in the footsteps of the district’s pioneers, had set an extremely high benchmark. “Even the weather helped out,” he said.

 

“While it teemed down at Almaden on Saturday night, that meant on Sunday the runners were not having to chew on any dust.”

 

The competitive side of the event saw outstanding efforts turned in, with six records broken.

 

“In the solo category, which surely is the toughest of all, Chris White smashed the existing record, pushing his wheelbarrow across 140 kilometres in just 14 hours, 14 minutes and 37 seconds, taking a massive 1hour, 44 minutes and seven seconds off the previous best time.

“The outright record was broken by The Fit Bucks in a time of 7hrs.15mins.17sec, averaging a cracking 19.17 kilometres per hour.

“The Over 40s record fell to Rotary Team 1 in a time of 9hrs.18mins.46 sec. The Services record fell to A­rmy Razorbacks at 8hrs.2mins.38sec. And the record for duos was broken by Ebony and Ivory who completed the course in 11hrs.1min.33 sec.

“I have to commend all of the competitors, their support teams, event volunteers and the organising committee.

“Much of the preparation goes unseen but this weekend has shown the benefits of all the training, planning and organisation that has consumed so much time in the preceding weeks and months.”

“Dimbulah has a small population but on the Friday night they had more than 1000 people stay there. And then on Saturday night Almaden, with a population measured in two digits, had a similar population explosion,” he said.

“The benchmark has now been set at a very high level for next year’s race but I am sure the region is up to the challenge,” Cr McGrath said.

 

The Great Wheelbarrow Race is the reigning Queensland Regional Achievement and Community Award winner, in the Events and Tourism category. A DVD of this year’s massive event is in production and will be available for purchase shortly.

Charity record smashed

Four Race Category records smashed

 

From the fast-finishing The Fit Bucks team to the courageous effort of 75-year-old Jon Booth, the 2012 Great Wheelbarrow Race had it all, with 52 teams crossing the finishing line at Chillagoe on Sunday afternoon.

 

Despite sore legs and tired muscles, the 600-strong crowd of competitors and support crews were in high spirits as they gathered in Chillagoe after the race to hear that the Cairns-based Fit Bucks were the overall winners of the 140km race.

 

The team put in a huge effort over the three-day event, finishing in the fastest time on every day, giving them the prestige of pushing the yellow wheelbarrow in each leg of the race.

 

On the leg from Dimbulah to Almaden (64km), Fit Bucks put in an outstanding effort, leaving last at Dimbulah and passing 51 teams to be the first team to cross the finish line in Almaden.

 

They smashed the record in the Men’s category, finishing the race in 7 hours 25 mins and 32 seconds.

 

Two other records were also broken – in the Over 40s category by the Mareeba Rotary Team 1, and in the Services category by the Army Razorbacks.

 

The Duo Ladies team, Bitumen Bee-Arches (Sonya Alba-Miller and Stephanie Inderbitzin), also broke the record in their category, recording a time of 14:40:04.

 

Huge Charity Effort!

 

Race Committee Chairman Alan Pedersen said the event was a huge success with 24 teams, who also competed for charity, smashing the record for fundraising.

 

“Between them, the 24 teams raised $144,861, which is just a fantastic effort for local charities,” he said.

 

The amount raised last year was just over $124,000.

 

The Great Wheelbarrow Race committee also donated $700 which was raised by raffling off a signed Cowboys jersey, generously donated by Coca-Cola Amatil. The money was presented to Tablelands Relay for Life who launched their event on Saturday night at Almaden.

 

The raffle brought the total funding raising efforts of the event to $145,561.

 

Wheelie Mad Women were the winners of the charity effort, raising $28,218 for FNQ Cerebral Palsy.

 

Other major fundraisers were Supporters of 65 Roses (for cystic fibrosis) who raised $18,020, Mareeba Rotary Teams 1 & 2 ($16,000), High Voltage ($10,840), Dimbulah Divas ($7600), Natural Athletes ($7000), Indie-Structables ($6000), and Chillie Fillies ($5780).

 

Talent Quest and Theme Award winners

 

Cr Pedersen said the teams enjoyed a fantastic night at Almaden on Saturday, entertained by Crackin’ Toe Jack, and some very talented competitors.

 

“There were about 900 people at Almaden and that’s a real boost to this very small community,” he said.

 

The Talent Quest in Almaden was hotly contested again this year, with Amalgamated Pest Control winning the event with their Rocky Horror Picture Show performance, followed by Harvey Norman Hot Shots, and Rotary Teams 1 & 2.

 

Amalgamated Pest Control also won the Best Theme award with their costumes that reflected the characters of the Rocky Horror Picture Show.

 

The Chillagoe Fossil does it again!

 

The Chillagoe Fossil, Jon Booth, who turns 76 in a few days, was greeted like a hero in each town along the way and has vowed to do it all again – for the 10th time – next year.

 

“I have been in the wheelbarrow race every year so I don’t think I could miss that one,” he said.

 

Tablelands Regional Council Deputy Mayor Evan McGrath was given a round of applause on Sunday for the marshalling role he took on for Jon for the majority of the race, meaning the councillor also walked about 90km during the event.

Cr McGrath told the crowd that Jon had been feeling very sick on Saturday afternoon but refused to give up and courageously pushed on, managing to make it into Almaden about 5.30pm.

The winners of the Race Categories were:

 

Mens: 1st – The Fit Bucks (record time); 2nd – Team Chillagoe; 3rd – Bowhunters NQ (from Tully)

 

Ladies: 1stWheelie Mad Women; 2nd – St Stephens Angels; 3rd – Dimbulah Divas

Services: 1st: Army Razorbacks (51st FNQ Regiment); 2nd – Hot Fuzz (Cairns police team);  3rd – Blue Lightning Speed Kills (Mareeba police team).

Solos: 1st – Brad Weaver (high school teacher from Mareeba); 2nd – Andres Real; 3rd – The Last Joker (Samuel Lewis)

 

10th Anniversary coming in 2013!

 

Cr Pedersen said he wished to thank everyone involved in organising and running the event and paid particular thanks to sponsors who said were critical in funding the race.

 

“It was tremendous effort by everyone involved – we couldn’t have asked for better weather and there were no problems along the way, so the whole event went off without a hitch and we thank everyone who had a hand in making it happen,” he said.

 

Next year is the 10th anniversary of the race and organisers are expecting another record number of teams to contest the event.
