This month a whole new event comes to Bankside, Borough and London Bridge.
Prepare to battle it out in the fearsomely competitive world of the egg 'n' spoon, sack race, piggyback, wheelbarrow, sprint relay, obstacle course, welly wanging, three-legged and, yes, it has to be… the gruelling tug o'war.
Never have so many prepared to battle it out for the honour of their team.
