Three legged race

A picnic party game played in pairs. The three legged race is really fun to play, really amusing to watch and really easy to organize.

All you'll need is a bunch of rope and contestants. You'll also have to set up a course with a starting point and a finish line. You can also set a few obstacles, twists and turns along the way, just to make things a bit more fun.

The race

Contestants have to form pairs. Each pair gets one leg tied together. This way they basically have three legs between the pair. Make sure you tie everyone together tight to avoid any untangling during the race. If a pair actually gets untied during the race, they are disqualified.

When the race starts, the pairs have to run from start to finish. Whichever pair is the fastest, wins the race.
