Learn the tricks to running a three-legged race – without ending up flat on your face!
You will need
- A partner
- Rope or pieces of cloth
Step 1 Look for someone who is close to your height with a similar leg length.
If you’re right-handed, choose a left-handed partner and vice versa, so you can both utilize your stronger side.
Step 2 Stand with your partner and face the same direction with your legs touching.
Step 3 Tie the rope or cloth securely around the touching ankles.
If your partner has an opposite dominant side than you, tie your non-dominant legs together.
Step 4 Put your arm around your partner’s waist, and have your partner do the same.
Step 5 Put your untied leg behind to start the race.
Step 6 Run, keeping your legs in sync.
Step 7 Cross the finish line and collect your prize!
