A lovely moment preserved in 1951. Yes, there is a website devoted to the sack race, and I am happy here to provide their rules for the game.
To play you will need one burlap bag for each two-person team. The more teams racing, the more fun it is.
- Participants stand side-by-side and put leg closest to each other in the burlap bag.
- Together, they race to the finish line.
- The first team to the finish line wins.
