Corporate & Sports Challenge - Rules & Course


  1. Teams will consist of three people and may be all male, all female or mixed.
  2. One team member will use a rope to pull the wheelbarrow, a second team
     member will push the wheelbarrow and a third person will ride in the
     wheelbarrow. See diagram 1 on the next page.
  3. The Wheelbarrow rider must wear a helmet (e.g. cycle helmet).
  4. The course is a triangle representing the historic wheelbarrow trip from
     Wellington to Greytown. See diagram 2 on the next page.
        a. From the start to the shovel shop. Teams will pick up a shovel at the shovel
           shop.
        b. From shovel shop to the Rising Sun. Teams will pick up a gum ‘pole’ at the
           Rising Sun.
        c. From the Rising Sun to the Planting Site.
  5. Team members must change positions at the end of leg one and leg two so that
     each team member has a turn in each position.
  6. Once teams arrive at the planting site they must plant their gum pole so that it
     stands erect.
  7. When the team is happy that their pole is planted the fastest runner returns the
     spade to the shovel shop and races back to the finish line while the other two
     hold onto the wheelbarrow. All three team members must cross the finish line to
     complete the race.
  8. If heats are required, the winner of each heat will qualify for the final. Depending
     on numbers, semi finals may also be held.
