Count off by 1s and 2s to create two teams, and let the games begin!
Relay 1: Each PAX from each team bear crawls 25 yards and back, one at a time. Next PAX goes when first PAX gets back. You know, like a relay. Hold low plank before it’s your turn to crawl, high plank on return. Team 1 won this round.
Relay 2: Crab walk down, reverse crab walk back. High/low plank like before. Dead-on-balls tie between the two teams.
Relay 3: Broad jump down and back. Hold Al Gore before and after your turn. Team 2 wins.
Relay 4: Wheelbarrow down and back. PAX 1 wheelbarrows down and back with PAX 2 holding feet. Then PAX 2 wheelbarrows with PAX 3 holding feet, etc. PAX 1 holds feet for final PAX to race. Team 2 wins. Q decides that round 2 tie goes to team 1, creating high-drama, winner-takes-all round 5 tie-breaker.
Relay 5: Sprint down and back, stopping at far end for 5 burpees. Team 1 wins.
Since it pays to be a winner, Team 2 fireman carries Team 1 50 or so yards along the sidewalk. Since it’s modern ‘Merica and everyone’s a winner, Team 1 fireman carries Team 2 back. Return to flag for Mary.
