SLIDESHOW: The 2016 Belton Barrow Race

Competitors in the 2016 Belton Barrow Race were no push-overs and had a wheely good time.

Winners in each section were: Adults - Simon Bradwell and Andrew Hopkins; Veterans - Simon Cliff and James Bland; 14 to 17-years-olds - Nathan Rae-Hassall and Owen Patterson; Ten to 13-year-olds - Georgia Campion and Molly Thompson; Five to nine-year-olds - Charlotte and Jonah Rae-Hassall; Adult and child - Mark Beecroft and Georgia Hughes.
