Into its third year, the World Barge Pulling Championship is back. Barge pullers from around the world are invited to gather on Beverley Beck to work in teams of 4 to pull themselves into the record books. Teams of men, women or mixed are welcome to compete against each other and gain the highest honour in the world of barge pulling.

The barge Syntan will be pulled from a standing start at the head of the Beck for a distance of 200 metres. The fastest time wins.

The event is open to all, both teams and spectators. Music and food will be on offer too.
