This sport has a very ‘you scratch my backʼ feel to it. Contestants are required to either drag or carry their partner halfway – but in return theyʼll secure an effort free return journey across the finish line.

And those wishing not to conform to gender stereotypes need not worry, as long as thereʼs two of you youʼre welcome to attempt to drag or carry your way to victory using your preferred combination.

Training begins

We send the pair off to discover a few of the ways they can carry each other from one place to another.

The final touches

As they prepare to wow Wales with their new-found flair for carrying each other around, Steph and Dom tool up with the essentials: Tarpaulin, soap, and nappies.
