Wife Carrying Competition

The Finnish Wife Carrying Festival is held annually in Finland in early July, and requires a man to negotiate a 253.5 m course while carrying their wife on their back. The course includes various surfaces and getting through dry land and water based obstacles. The prize to the winner is a mobile phone, and more importantly they also win their wife's weight in beer!

Rules

It may seem like just a bit of fun, but there are some official rules that have to be followed.
