Racers will be “revving up” their wheelbarrows in a unique charity challenge planned for next month.
The timed rally for decorated barrows will take place around the centre of Ozanköy on Sunday, October 4, with all proceeds going to the Help Those With Cancer Association (Tulips) and the Masons.
Starting at 1pm, competitors will collect bricks as they go, while spectators will be invited to squirt them with water pistols as well as throw loose change into the barrows.
Seven “special stages” are lined up at bars along the route, where racers, who will pay 5TL to enter, must order an alcoholic or non- alcoholic drink of at least 33cl or pay a 5TL fine. Other penalties on the day will include 5TL for going to the toilet, 5TL for a “water hazard” and 5TL for disputing a fine.
There will be a prize of a case of beer, donated by organiser David Miller, for the nearest to the perfect time, a bottle of bubbly donated by a newly-wed couple for the best decorated barrow, and a meal for two with a drink donate by The Grafton for the most bricks collected.
For more information or to enter the event, contact Mr Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org or on 0542 887 7661.
