OK, first things first. You need to make up a PARENT AND CHILD team. Children must be aged between 7 and 12 as at race day. Kids under 7 can have a crack at Nippers.

If Mum or Dad is unable to form a team, they are welcome to deputise an uncle, aunty or trusted family friend to act as guardian to the child in the team. The guardian must be at least 18 years of age.

Teams must be one child and one parent or guardian; teams cannot be made up of two children or one adult and two children.

XRACE is a mystery adventure. We don't reveal the challenges each team will encounter until AFTER the start gun goes. The only clue we will be giving away is “read your challenge sheet – read every word.”

Teams must locate and complete 10 separate challenges.

Challenges can range from physical (like the sack race) to technical (like stilt-walking) and mental (like the music challenge).

The distances you cover in total will be around 3 to 4 kilometres. Teams can run or walk.

The first team to locate all 10 challenges, complete every one correctly and avoid being thrown into bouncy castle jail will become their city's XRACE champions.
