Bungee running involves participants running as far as they can whilst connected to an elastic rope, which is anchored to a fixed point.

This is extremely popular especially as it is not considered to be as dangerous as its jumping cousin. It is not without its hazards and usually takes place on wet or muddy ground or on a large inflatable run.

Due to the extension of the bungee rope during this activity, it is necessary to find a large clear area (free of all obstructions, e.g. tree roots, stumps, paths etc.) with suitable anchorage point(s). This area should not be too narrow.

Can be enjoyed by people of all ages, but young children should be supervised by a responsible adult.

No special ability is required other than a determination to run as far as possible with the rope attached. Participants should ensure that the surface they take part on is soft as there may be frequent falls.

Bungee running involves participants running as far as they can whilst connected to an elastic rope, which is anchored to a fixed point. The normal scenario involves either muddy ground or tarpaulins covered in soapy water to make the progress more difficult. Participants try to place markers at the furthest extension of the bungee rope. Variations involve balloon bursting en route and the wearing of fancy dress.

The object of bungee running is to run as far away as you can, while a bungee cord is around your waist. The further you run the harder it gets and suddenly the power of the bungee cord will launch you back to the start. Perfect for people who always wanted to try bungee jumping but where afraid of heights! Generally more fun in a head-to-head challenge where two people attempt to get further than their opponents.
