Game description

The runners have to compete over a certain distance. The classic race run is usually over 100 or 200 meters, and all participants start simultaneously. A relay race, however, may be extended to 1,000 to 1,500 metres. You need to form a few running teams though and position each member at a certain place of the race. The first runner receives a rod or something similar and starts running. As soon he arrives at his first team member, he hands over the rod and the second kid starts running.


The winner is the participant or the team which first reached the finishing line.
