Shoelace Tying Race

Report Copyright Infringement View in OSM UK View in OSM NZ


A quick game of how fast can you tie your shoe laces..


a 24" shoelace per scout - cordage, parachord whatever.


Individuals sit in chairs with a 24" shoelace on the floor under the right or left shoe (depending on the contestant's "handed-ness").
At starting whistle, contestants must tie a knot and bow.
When finished then must stand with hands in air, (this stops the timer).

The shoelace placed on the floor under shoe eliminates the need for everyone to wear shoes with laces.

Added Challenge: Can you tie the Turquoise Turtle shoelace knot fast enough?
