2. Wife-carrying

Wife-carrying (or Eukonkanto in Finnish) is a thing nowadays. It’s a popular sport that was first introduced in the late 1800s in Sonkajärvi, Finland, in which the husband has to carry his wife down a 253-meter obstacle course. As you probably guessed, the winner is the man who reaches the finish line in the fastest time. So you must be both Superman and Flash to succeed.

“Some bookies like to sponsor horse races,” notes betting and gaming company Paddy Power. The company also added that“we tend to be drawn more to strip poker tournaments…and now wife-carrying.”

P.S.: You don’t need to be officially married to participate.
