Try these outdoor games to help make running (even more) fun

Switcharoo (in pairs)

Mark out a square or circular course (it could be half or all of a football pitch, or just the back garden). Get the children into pairs and label them A and B. All the As set off anticlockwise at a walking pace, while all the Bs set off clockwise at a jogging pace. When the partners meet they high-five each other and carry on, but this time, the As are jogging and the Bs are walking.
