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. Click here to find out more about Nippers
If dad or mum are 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 just ten minutes before the start gun goes. Only in the final minutes will your team be given your XRACE challenge sheet and race map.
Your challenge sheet is the list of rules and challenges that make up your XRACE. The map will display the boundaries of the race course and mark where the challenges are.
Teams can use this ten minutes to develop a winning team strategy. Below is an excerpt from a challenge sheet from a previous XRACE. Teams will need to get their challenge sheet stamped at each challenge.
This challenge must be completed by both team members. The team members must locate the Kite Referee. The referee will hand them a packaged kite. Your mission is to assemble and fly the kite. Once the kite has been held airborne - string fully extended - the Kite Referee will stamp your challenge sheet.
Failure to comply will result in dad or mum spending five minutes in bouncy castle jail. It really does exist - and it's shoes off Dad!
Remember, the first team to locate all 10 challenges, completing every one correctly and avoid being thrown into bouncy castle jail - will become their city's XRACE champions.
