Wheelbarrow Race

This is an ideal event to be added to a kids’ sports day. It’s energetic, fun, inexpensive and will get everybody involved.

All you need are two people per team. One becomes the “wheel” by placing their hands on the ground and putting their legs in the air. The other become the “barrow” by holding onto the other person’s legs and directing them, almost like the rudder of a boat. From there it’s as simple as walking — using the “wheel’s” hands and the “barrow’s” legs — as fast as possible in a straight line to get to the finish line.

Great fun for everyone involved and definitely a Kodak moment too!
