Military Cross-Country

For athletics competitions with that "Sgt. Hartman" feeling.

Just combine military training parcours with all your favorite obstacles (haphazard barbed wire, walls and, of course, the dreaded MUD PIT) and hold a running competition on it. No, I do not just mean a competition for soldiers somewhere on a military base but a competition for athlets which is broadcasted like, e.g., the olympics. This would add more variety to the races as each track could be designed in a different way, posing interesting difficulties to the runners.

Race, barbed wire, cross-country, walls, lots of mud, real athletes, broadcast (ok, local news item), designed differently each season. All of the idea's requirements and more - fancy dress! [sappho, Jul 08 2002, last modified Oct 17 2004]

       [Saruman] I am going to give you a croissant for that remark and the underlying humour. There is nothing wrong with the idea at all, perhaps halfbakers are not particularly athletic. I know I am not, perhaps make it a pub game of sorts....   

       make mine a pint and a packet of pork scratchings, SIR!

       Mmmmmmmmmm pork scratchings. I would have a pint with that but I can't order stuff from the bar.

       I don't know, but i hear they get terrible athlets hang-nail.

       Note that the biathlon is just such an event - ski and shoot. No barbed wire, tho.
