Survival of the Fittest

Event Description

As participants arrive, they receive a bib number to serve as team identification, so they can easily find the other members of their team. Next, it’s time for the emcee to get the group to warm up to the fitness-related challenges they’ll face during this event. Some challenges are physical and teams get points for each person on their team who completes them. Moderations are outlined at physical challenges to cater to varying fitness levels. Sample physical challenges include:

Yoga – Teammates flow through a series of moves. Points are assessed once their team of “warriors” completes the flow a set amount of times.

Zumba – Teammates learn and perform a quick routine for points.

Sarge Says – Teammates get put through their paces in Boot Camp-style exercises…but, they can only do them if “Sarge Says.” Teammates left in the game at the end of the session receive points!

Rings Run – Teammates won’t get “tire”d out as they run through a pattern of floor rings.

Fitness Obstacle Course – A series of three moves - high knee runs to the tunnel crawl, followed by walking lunges to the end of the course.

Planks – Teammates get points if they can hold a plank for one minute!

Jump Rope – Teammates get points for jump roping for one minute straight.

Wall Sit – Teammates who haven’t hit the wall yet, get points for “sitting” for one minute.

Suicide Runs – Teammates get points for completing the drill – walk or run to one cone and back again, then out to the next furthest cone and so on until they’ve touched all of the cones.

Over the Head Tricep Pass – Teammates line up, passing a weighted ball over their head to the next person in line, until it makes it all the way down the line.

Crab Walk – A fun fitness challenge that won’t make anyone crabby, especially when they get points to complete it!

Push-ups / Push-up Walk – Teammates take their pick. They have a minute to do as many push-ups (from their knees or their toes) as they can in a minute or they can see if they can do a walking push-up from Point A to Point B to earn points.

Other challenges favor brains over brawn, so teammates who prefer to sit out a physical challenge can still do some heavy lifting for the team! A handout with fitness-related puzzles is given to each team. All solutions, which are fitness-related, are recorded on an answer sheet and handed in at the end of the event. Teams get points for each one they get correct. For instance, one puzzle may read:

Push-ups will help you strengthen your chest muscles…they also come in handy when trying to solve this clue:

LITN
ONAU
SORR
EIAN
HTMO
TUSH

Solution: If teams “push up” each line of text (instead or reading it from left to right) it reads, “The solution is marathon run.”

Teams must meet at a set time to see which team collected the most points and earned the title of “the fittest” with regards to points! The winners race forward to collect their award medals. But, whether teams go home with a medal or not, this is one event that will surely make a high impact on them!
