Sand Marble Racing
Every kid with some marbles would want play at marble racing! Unfortunately many, like me (i’m a big kid!) don’t live near enough to a beach to be able to create as an amazing track as this.
Jelle’s Marble Runs on youtube have created a huge 750 foot long marble race (that’s 228.6 meters for the rest of the world) so you need to place your bets on which marble you think will win.
We’ll cover the BMBC ( British Marbles Board of Control) rules for their game of marbles at a later date ( a sport that dates back as long as 1588!), in the meantime if you live near a beach you should definitely head down to your beach, create an amazing track and send us your results. We’ll be looking forwards to your submissions.
I wonder if the Romans or Chaldeans in Mesopotamia who played with marbles in ancient times had the initiative to create something as marvelous as this, i know i never thought about creating a track in the sand, I did have a Marble Madness set when i was a kid and i remember vividly creating a huge run for them to head down.
If you do get yourself a cool Marble Madness set, make sure you pick up some Marbles whilst you are at it, you can’t have fun with marble racing without marbles!
In the meantime, check out some of these other amazing marble videos Jelle has made on their youtube channel.
