Circle Race

_10 to 30 or more players._

_Playground; gymnasium._

The players stand in a circle a considerable distance apart and face
around in single file in the same direction. At a signal all start to
run, following the general outline of the circle, but each trying to
pass on the outside the runner next in front of him, tagging as he
passes. Any player passed in this way drops out of the race. The last
player wins. At a signal from a leader or teacher, the circle faces
about and runs in the opposite direction. As this reverses the
relative position of runners who are gaining or losing ground, it is a
feature that may be used by a judicious leader to add much merriment
and zest to the game.
