Resistance Band Sprints

So this weekend, I was at a sweet corn festival, and they had one of those blowup things where you try to run as far as you can with a bungee cord of sorts harnessed to you. It was wicked fun, and I think it would be a very good training tool. I've seen it in some Gym Jones videos, but not in any crossfit stuff. Does anyone here do this exercise, and what kind of resistance bands would you use to do it? I have some jumpstretch bands, but they are much too short. Thanks.
The important thing is not to stop questioning.

Re: Resistance Band Sprints

Iron Woody makes resistance bands for just what you are looking for, in varying resistance levels depending on what your poison is. I have the "masters" set on order, and should be getting them shortly. My plan is to hard mount them to the wall, and do resisted sprints/bear crawls with them on the days we do our "outdoor" WODs and sub sometimes for the hill sprints with a harness and tire that we do. Just google Iron Woody, and find them on their website. I havent actually used them yet, but have heard good things, and you can get a package that suits your needs. Hope that helps.
