Hurdles can be added to make the race even more difficult.
Bursting Balloons: This is a fun game that requires materials such as balloons and magnifying glasses.

The objective in this game is to fill the medium-sized buckets with water in lesser time than the opposing team. The player standing next to the large bucket has to fill the cup with water and pass it to the next player. The water-filled cup should be passed onto the last player who is standing next to the empty, medium-sized bucket. After emptying the cup into the bucket, this player has to run and stand at the opposite end of the line; from where he has to fill the cup and pass it on to the next one. This cycle of filling and emptying the cup should continue until one of the team fills their bucket. The team which fills their bucket early wins the game.
Crossing and Tagging: This game doesn't necessarily need a large group however, becomes enjoyable with large number of players involved. Two lines with a distance of 10-15 feet between them should be drawn on the ground. One of the players has to stand between these lines; other players should face him and stand at certain distance from the line between them. These players have to cross, both the lines that their opponent is guarding. This, solitary player who is standing between the two lines and who guards them is required to tag his opponents while they try to cross. Those players who are tagged by this guard join him and they together try and tag the remaining players. The player who gets tagged in the end is declared as winner.
