The Studebaker Wheelbarrow Races are an annual tradition that showcase fierce competitors of all ages. Participants train hard for the big day where they traverse through various obstacles such as mud pits, railroad ties, and balance beams, as the stadium thunders with applause. Winners are showcased in local media and have bragging rights unlike any others. This exciting competition will be held for the 74th year at the El Dorado County Fair on Saturday, June 16, starting at 7:00 p.m.

High School Team Challenge – two person High School Teams. Teen Races – (Ages 13-17) Boys and Girls run separate races. Youth Races – (Ages 10-12) Boys and Girls run separate races.
