Piggyback rides are fun. Hauling your tired, muddy friend (or new acquintance) along a long stretch of trail is exquisite. Don't worry - you'll get to switch with them halfway.
Choose your Style
Piggyback or Fireman style – that is the question. See what feels right.
Eye on the Prize
See that sign in the distance? That’s where you switch. Make haste.
Meet & Greet
Don’t know anyone? No problem. Odd numbers are as common as even numbers. It’s time to meet a new friend.
The inside word
Deep dive into the details of Hero Carry.
How To Conquer
Talk with your teammate (or random partner) about how you’d like to carry and/or be carried. Piggybacking is traditional, but the advanced fireman’s carry technique – in which you carry your partner across your back by hooking one of their arms and one of their legs with your elbows – is the key for fastmovers.
A HISTORY: HERO CARRY
The concept of carrying a companion for the sheer joy of it is surely as old as humanity itself. Our innovative team would never dream of taking credit for it.
