No field day is complete without this classic race. But don't let the simple rules fool you; sharing a leg is no mean feat.
Divide players into teams of two (matching an adult with a child keeps things fair and interesting). Using a bandanna, each pair ties one partner's right ankle to the other's left ankle.
When the whistle blows, all of the pairs, assembled side by side at the starting line, race to the finish line. The first team whose pairs all cross the finish line wins.
