Tenth anniversary of Ammanford Barrow Racers

Screen Shot 2016-07-28 at 12.16.23THE TENTH anniversary of the Barrow Racers – known locally as the wacky racers – in Ammanford is going be a great day out tomorrow (Jul 16) at 12pm. 

The annual event involves teams of two dressing up in fancy dress outfits and taking turns pushing each other in a wheelbarrow along the 6 mile course, starting at the Amman United RFC, down and around Ammanford, before returning to the RFC grounds.

The event has a twist this year, where each team has to stop off at 16 bars located along the course where they must finish a pint to continue. Needless to say, not all teams are expected to make it to the finish line!

All money raised at the event is being donated to LATCH Children’s Cancer Charity, and in previous years the teams have raised over £1000.

Even with the pub theme, the event is still family friendly and the organisers expect the biggest turn out ever.
