1 GAME: Broken Race!!!

Game / Bible / Life Connection:  

  1. Show Players the starting line and finish line for the game.
  2. Have Players line up on the starting line and say, “Go!” (They should all run to the finish line.) Important: explain you are keeping time and you want to see if they can lower their time.
  3. After the Players run the first race, have a Coach say, “I want to change the rules!”
  4. Now, have the Players link arms with a partner. Once they are linked together in pairs, have them race again. (The time should be much slower).
  5. Change the rules again for the next race. Now have all the Players turn around in place 15 times before they run to the finish line. (The time should be much slower).
  6. Continue changing the rules for each race, thinking of funny things to have them do (that will slow down the runners). [The more changes you make the harder it will be to run the race.]
