OVERVIEW OF 100 YARD DASH
A 100 yard dash is a fun game to play when you have no materials and are running out of ideas as to what to play. It is a classic kids field day game that replicates Olympic races at a smaller scale. Although this game is simple, this will get everyone’s hearts racing as they rush to the finish line. Discover who is the fastest runner in the group!
Before getting started, measure out the 100 yards on a field and mark the start and finish lines. If you don’t have a tape measure, as long as it’s a friendly game, just roughly guess where to mark. All players must stand before the start line, waiting for the signal to start.
At the signal, all players run to the finish line as fast as they can! No tripping or foul play allowed. This is a simple game that only involves running.
END OF GAME
The player that crosses the finish line first wins the race! Use a stop watch to time the fastest runner and the differences in finishing time between the subsequent racers.
