Spin Around Relay

Source: School, Church, and Home Games
Category: RACING GAMES FOR PICNICS





One member of each team takes a position on the distance line, opposite
to and facing his team. At the signal to go the first man on each team
runs forward, locks his right arm in the right arm of the man on the
distance line and in this position spins twice around, using the man on
the distance line as a pivot. Completing his second spin, he remains on
the distance line while the man who was there returns and tags off the
next member of his team, who repeats the performance. The race ends
when the last man to spin around the pivot crosses the base line.

This race can be modified by having two or even three individuals
distributed at equal distances between the base and the distance line
to spin around, instead of one.
