Game description

2 runners stand next to each other and are tied together at the ankle with a sheet. The arms are hooked together. Then an obstacle course or race against the other teams takes place. It is recommended that you use thick rope and not thin string. Longer pieces of fabric are suitable. The danger of falling over and twisted ankles is increased in this game.


You can also play a game of three legged football.


The faster and more skilled team wins. The most important thing in this game is that both runners can co-ordinate and consider the others. It can only go as quickly as the slowest member of the group.
