Balancing is an event featured in the Marble League that has been held in numerous years. The goal of the event is to stay on a thin bar as long as possible and aim to reach the end. The spot where the athlete falls off is counted as their score (in centimeters).

The Raspberry Racers have the top medal count at three medals.

Rules

Four marbles from a team are released from the starting gate in a single file line. The marbles must go as far as they can on a 5 cm thick balance beam, attempting to reach the end of the beam if possible (130 cm). The marbles are scored depending on where they drop off, and the team with the highest combined total length wins.

A variant from the Hubelino Tournament, called the Catwalk, has a similar premise. The balance beam is split into different point sections, each marble earning the number of points of the section they land in. The further you travel, the more points you earn. The team's score is the sum of all the individual members' scores.
