OBJECTIVE OF THE EVENT

Teams of 2 to 5 have to score as many points as they can in the time allowed – either 3 or 1.5 hours

You can score points in two ways:

  1. Navigate to checkpoints (numbered circles on the map) and record the code or answer the question (on the provided scorecard) to prove you have been to that checkpoint. Navigation is easy with no compass needed. If you can read a street map or similar then you will be sweet!

  2. Complete the various Mystery Activities which are marked (with a letter) on the map at various locations. The activity supervisor will give you instructions on how to complete the activity and you must complete the activity to score the points. The activity supervisor will score and record your points.

Everything is optional so teams decide how many activities they will complete or navigational checkpoints they will visit and in what order. That’s part of the strategy!  But watch out – we start deducting points off if you come back after the allocated time limit (3 or 1.5 hrs).  30 points per part minute you are late!

At registration you will collect a race pack which has the following for the team:

  • Maps

  • Plastic bags to protect maps

  • Navigational checkpoint descriptions – lists the checkpoints, a clue to where they are,a question to answer and the points they are worth.

  • Mystery activity descriptions – list all the activities, a description, what points they are worth and where they are.

  • Some goodies maybe?

 

You then have planning time between when you register and when you start.  Teams should read all the information and plan what activities they are going to do and which navigational checkpoints they plan to visit.

We’ll have a compulsory race briefing where we’ll brief you on some basics on how the event works, health and safety, rules and anything else that needs covering.

SCORING

This year we are using an app called SporteeringTM  for scoring the checkpoints you visit.  Please ensure one person in each team downloads the SporteeringTM App onto their phone and we’ll send instructions leading up to the event.  This process will involve you scanning a QR code with the app to prove you have been to checkpoints.  This will allow us to have the results and therefore the prizegiving very quickly after the last finisher.

 

 

PRIZEGIVING

About 30mins after the finish, after we have input the scores into the computer and tallied everything up, we have a prize giving with a few merit prizes for the top teams and a range of small spot prizes drawn randomly.
