Workout Games Around Sprinting

When I was in the marines we played a game called British bulldog. The bulldogs stand in the middle of the play area. All remaining players stand at one end of the area (home). The aim of the game is to run from one end of the field to the other, without being caught by the bulldogs. When a player is caught, they become a bulldog themselves.
