Human Centipede Race

Two teams of twenty or so runners attached at the ankles in a single line.

There would be two plastic 2x4s about 30 feet long with holes through which the runners would insert their feet. Inflatable collars around the perimeter of the holes would secure the feet and provide some cushioning.

There would probably have to be somebody calling out cadence like a sculling team. The running team that could better synchronize their steps would win.

       Well, yea I guess. I was thinking more of them looking like a centipede than of the the "cent" part, but yes, it would have to be 50 to be a true "hundred foot".
doctorremulac3, Aug 22 2015
  

       Yes, prior chain gang experience would definitely help.

       Soldiers do this all the time, mind you at a jog not a full out run.

       What kind of food has an apostrophe in it?   

       <some time later> OK, I have Googled "s'mores" and I can only say that I am horrified. What were you people thinking??

       S'mores are basically sugar dipped in a sugared sugar coating, layered with sugar and just a pinch of extra sugar on top to add sweetness.
