Teachers win fifth straight Nemo 500 outhouse race

Posted:

It's an unusual way to spend a Saturday, but dozens of people headed to Nemo this morning to sit on the John. 
 
They're all full of it -- spirit, that is.

Twelve teams built custom outhouses to drag around the Nemo Guest Ranch in the seventh annual Nemo 500.

All the outhouses sported names like "Zombie A-poo-calypse" and "Dueces Wild," and at least one we couldn't say on TV.

A group of South Dakota teachers with an outhouse they dubbed "Plunger Games," after the popular Hunger Games trilogy, was back for the sixth time this year, and came away with their fifth straight division one win.
 
"We train we have a lot of people come straight out of college, lots of really good athletes," said team member Christine French. "We do time trials; we kind of test them out before we allow them on the team."
 
During half time in the Nemo 500, a different set of racers took to the track.

The shovel races brought kids and parents to the starting line to clock their best times on a much shorter race track.
 
Back to the outhouses, Plunger Games completed the course, which is just under 1,000 feet long, in 1:36, just three seconds faster than the division two winner, Deuces Wild.
