31 Legged Race,30人31脚

The “31 Legged Race” is an ultimate team sports event where 30 elementary school children run literally together in a row for 50 meters with their legs tied together.

The race has become a nationwide event providing fun and entertainment for both the participants and the viewers. This race requires much practice, diligence, and most of all team spirit: working together, focusing on creating a unified rhythm, and placing the team in front of yourself.

The rules are simple. A group of 30 kids from the same elementary school form one team and connect their legs by using specially designed ankle straps. This creates 29 tied legs, with two free legs on each end, therefore creating the “31 Legged Race.” Each team must run 50 meters in a wide open space. The goal tape is backed with a giant safety cushion so the kids can make a dive for their fastest time. 

A simple and highly relatable format that will surely make your kids want to participate!
