The Barrowthon is for friends and families who want to push themselves to show they care. Recreating a bet made in 1935, participants push themselves over 88 kilometres, from Beechworth to Mount Buffalo in a wheelbarrow to raise funds and awareness for a charity of choice. The two day event passes through the scenic High Country, safely along rail trails and country roads.
