About Pimp My Barrow


Pimp My Barrow is a charitable wheelbarrow race that is run every year at the University of East Anglia. The event now attracts well over 2000 students and over 400 wheelbarrows every year. Students organise themselves into teams, decorate their wheelbarrows and then race around a course through the streets of fine city of Norwich. Every year the event raises over £10,000 which is donated to The Big C, Norfolk's cancer charity. The event was started in 2006 by UEA students Tom Tapper and Paul Wheeler.
