Quadruped Race

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





The first two players on each team stand back to back behind the base
line, with the first player facing the distance line. The two lock arms
behind them. At the signal to go the first player bends forward,
lifting the second player so that his feet are clear of the ground and
carries him forward on his back in this position. When he has crossed
the distance line, he lowers the player upon his back, without changing
their relative position and that player, upon getting his feet upon the
ground, bends forward, lifting the first player upon his back, and runs
back with him in this position across the base line.

When the first couple has crossed the base line, the second couple on
each team proceeds with the race, copying the first.
