Desk Run


  • Time

    5-10 mins
  • Level

    3 (out of 5)

Quick but effective! Have everyone race around their desks, first back wins. Simple!


  1. Have everyone stand up - tell them the ‘win word’ and the following instructions.

  2. When you say GO everyone must race around their desk.

  3. Once they’re back at the computer they must write the ‘win word’ in chat e.g: ZOOM-ZOOM! or CHAMPION or… potato - anything you like.

  4. The first person to post in the chat wins.

Materials // Remarks

This is a level 3 because not all groups will be comfy or able to race around their desk. Be sure to consider mobility, accessibility and inclusion before choosing this energizer.
