During the 2018 El Dorado County Fair, the 74th Annual Studebaker Wheelbarrow Races will showcase fierce competitors of all ages and raise funds for Placerville Kiwanis. 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 year, the exciting competition will be held at the El Dorado County Fair on Saturday, June 16, starting at 7:00 p.m.
