Wheelbarrow Race

A wheelbarrow race is a competitive game conducted in pairs, in which one plays the role of the driver, and the other the role of the wheelbarrow. The driver holds on to the other player's ankles, while the other player walks on their hands.

Races are held over various distances, or may be in the form of a relay. The first person or team to cross the finish line is the winner.

There are no formal or professional competitions for sack races. Competitions are commonly conducted during festivals, picnics and school sports days.
