Game description

If you do not have any jute bags available, try the sack race for once with plastic garbage bags. The principle is the same. However, the plastic bag will tear much easier. This game is best played on a meadow. A dirt road is not such a good idea. Decide for yourself how you want to organise this tournament. You can decide on a certain distance, a hurdle or station race. The more obstacles, the funnier the game for sure. One word of caution: Make sure the ground where you hold your tournament is not slippery.


The winner is the one who reaches the finishing line first. This can be 1:1 or against time. Let the kids decide. The individual obstacles can be separately evaluated. For example, per obstacle a point. Use your imagination to come up with other possibilities for the kids to earn points.
