  5. Both the contestants must be 19 years or older.
  6. Dropping your wife or falling will incur a 10 second penalty in the contest and perhaps additional penalties from your wife after the race.
  7. Husbands may carry their wives any way they choose, however it must be by their own power – no foreign object (like wheelbarrows or harnesses) will be allowed.
  8. All contestants must wear pants and a smile. Other articles of clothing may be substituted for pants, but smiling and having fun are non-negotiable.
  9. “Wives” must wear a helmet.
  10. Inflatable wives will be disqualified.
