The race was organized in the following form: The family team first disassembles the tent set up at the start point. Then, they fled somewhere and took special bags ahead, and each participant went into the sack to the saddle. In such a case, the competitors, who competed at a certain distance, skipped the backs off at a certain point and retreated forward. Then, the participants pass and threw the balls into the rim on the tree. The family ran to a certain point with a concrete cobweb, then crossed the wooden rope and slid his hands and feet and ran to the next obstacle. At this time, the team moves on a parallel rope between the two trees, and then shoots a special axis for the mounted sail. Here, members of the family entered a circle and walked to a certain distance and found the words that were meant for the table above. The team then jumped a little further and jumped to the distance determined by the rope hung on the tree. Then they took the father and mother from the victim's point of departure and took him to the finish. Here they reset the tent that they had removed at the start point and returned to their previous position.
