Adult Field Day encourages living healthy

MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Ever wanted to take it back to your younger days?

Adult Field Day participants had a chance to do that Saturday afternoon.


Participants competed in a dizzy bat spin, balloon-on-a-stick walk and a human wheelbarrow race Saturday afternoon.

12 teams competed, gathering points for finishing above other teams in multiple events.

The Macon-Bibb Parks and Recreation hosted the field day, which also featured a DJ.

One team competing was Team Hummingbird, who held a big lead in points when 41NBC caught up with them.

“Ah yeah, we wanna have fun, but more so to compete. We’re more competitive so it’s a–we try to keep the smiles down to a minimum out here and the victories to a number 1,” said Chris Cook, a member of Team Hummingbird.


“There’s a lot of people this community who can’t commit to an 8-week long sport, it’s really hard to make practices, to make team meetings. and so we wanted to offer a one-day event so people who couldn’t make that commitment could still get out and do some sort of fun, adult athletic event,” said Recreation Programmer Ellen Banas.

Banas said the fee was $150 per team to play.

She said next year they would expand to 20 teams and have the field day around the same time in May.
