A timeless classic, burlap “gunny-sack” or “potato-sack” races have been a time treasured pastime for generations of children. An excellent activity for picnics, carnivals, barbeques, block parties, birthday parties, reunions, camps, school, youth groups, and holiday celebrations, these racing sacks offer hours of good, old-fashioned fun!
Sack-racing is a fun activity that the whole family can enjoy, so we made our bags large enough for players of all ages, from kids to adults. So get everyone off the couch, turn off the phones and computers, and head outdoors with this entertaining group game.
The bags are made from 100% heavy-duty jute burlap, also known as hessian cloth, an all-natural and sustainable eco-friendly fiber that is recyclable, compostable, and completely biodegradable.
These sack race bags are also great for protecting your plants from frost in the winter, as well as limiting sun exposure in the summer heat. Burlap sacks have also been traditionally linked to produce storage, which is why they are commonly known as potato sacks.
It is important to note that burlap has a natural smell that is often compared to the smell of kerosene. This is the raw smell of Jute fibers, but the smell will dissipate after being aired out for a while.
6 BURLAP POTATO RELAY RACE SACKS: Measuring 23” x 40” these sacks are great for players of all ages, big enough for use by adults and small enough to be used by children. The sacks are large enough to reach the waist of a 6’-tall adult, and not too large for a child to use comfortably.
TOUGH AND DURABLE: Naturally tough, the natural burlap fibers can be used repeatedly. Additionally, the reinforced edges make it suitable for players of all ages!
EARTH FRIENDLY: 100% biodegradable, burlap bags are the eco-friendly sack race solution. Made from the jute plant, burlap completely decomposes when discarded, and the production is completely carbon neutral!
