The Race is a mini-game that can be played in A Link to the Past and Four Swords Adventures.

Location and Rules

In A Link to the Past, the race is held in the south part of Kakariko Village in a yard next to the Quarreling Brothers' house. Link must bomb the left wall of the house and walk outside to access the game. A woman says he will get a reward if he goes to the end of the track in 15 seconds or less.[1] Doing so, Link earns a Piece of Heart.[2] If he plays again, the man at the end of the maze tells him he has no more rewards to give.[3]

In Four Swords Adventures, the race is held by two children in the Village of the Blue Maiden, in the Dark World. The four Links have 20 seconds to reach a goal in order to obtain the Pegasus Boots. With bombs, the Links can reach the end in less than 3 seconds.

Trivia

  • In A Link to the Past, the Sign in the yard will tell Link that if he has enough time to read it, he should go straight to the goal.[4]
