Supermarket Sweep - all entrants have to be over 6' and be experts at weaving with trolley. Obstacles to include:

1. Old ladies walking slowly with a basket,

2. Overworked Mum out with a convoy of trollies and 4 kids

3. Trollies with wonky wheels, short people stopping you to ask if you can get the tin off the topshelf - you get bonus points for the getting the tin.

4. Shelf stacker blocking the aisles

5. Dumb ass people leaving their trolley in the middle of the aisle while they fetch something from the next aisle.

M25 Lap Race - first person to complete two laps during Monday morning rush hour gets the gold. Tasks to include:

1. You have to pick the best queues on the Dartford tunnel / QE2 bridge. No use of DART cards or pre-counting the toll charge.

2. Everyone has to use the same vehicle a Volvo estate complete with 2 noisy kids on the back seat and a dog in the boot.

3. Pit stops to be made at the service stations and tasks to collect newspaper and various other products which could be sponsored.

4. Maybe throw in a meal break at a McDonalds (the official food provider of the games). Variable speed limit must be obeyed.

5. Possibly additonal points for how close you can get to the car in front (who isn't allowed to be another competitor must a member of the public).

Lots of opportunities for showing off the beautiful sites around the M25 like Clacket Lane services, Terminal 5, the GIVE PEAS A CHANCE bridge (http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=give+peas+a+chance+m25&hl=en&biw=1138&bih=532&prmd=imvns&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=k9fkT-zDJOib1AWGko2XCQ&ved=0CFsQsAQ), beautiful Croydon and the turbine windmills. The commentators could talk about all the interesting things that have happened around the route like Staines Upon Thames and its claim to fame of being the place Lino was invented.

iPod Marathon - first person to complete race without being flattened by a car/truck while running around central London wearing an iPod with volume turned up high while normal traffic and other people are on the course. Obviously sponsored by Apple. China may an unfair advantage in this event though.

McDonald High Jump - high jumping after have 6 extra large value meals or maybe the kids breakfast http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-18490459 (so named because it weighs the same as a small child)

Lens changing relay race.

This is where you run with a camera and have to change the lens before handing it over to your next team mate.

Car phone idiocy seeing how many people you can annoy by stopping on a main road to take a phone call because you can't spend £10 on a hands free kit or wait until you get where you're going thinking that this actually makes what you're doing legal.

Any sort of sex would do for me at the moment! with maybe one or two exeptions.

Sniper shooting TF wannabe's who think a Ipad self taken mirror reflected image posted on here makes them a super model cos they've learnt to smear a bit of eye shadow n lippy then nip out on a Sat night to tell their mates they're models and have a got 6 months of shoots lined up only to get fed up of the idea and never log onto their account from one full moon to the next. I'd be a gold medalist marksman.
