The “anchor man” in each team must pass the rope under one armpit diagonally across the back and over the opposite shoulder from rear to front. The remaining rope shall pass on a backward and outward direction and the slack shall run free. He shall grip the standing part of the rope with both arms extended forwards. No other turns or loops will be allowed.

The rope must remain straight and all the team must remain on their feet throughout the pull.

The practice of a team that is losing releasing the rope to make their opponents fall backwards is dangerous and must not occur, any team doing so will be immediately disqualified and will receive no points.
