Urban Race is your opportunity to spend yourlunch break with a partner competing in a one of a kind urban adventure race. You'll need to think on your feet and use your brain to solve puzzles, riddles and clues from a clue sheet to find 10 destinations, think of it like a scavenger hunt featuring fitness challenges, and also an opportunity to learn about unique new fitness companies in our city.
Urban Race will be happening all week from Monday 16th October till Friday 21 October from 12noon till 2pm.
Urban Race, is celebrated as part of Spark Festival. Let Urban Rec take you on a tour of all the new, innovative, and disruptive Fitness, Health, and Sport businesses operating in Sydney! This amazing race adventure is for amateurs, athletes and everyone in between.
This race is great for first timers and rookie runners because you run on your own, at your own pace. Nobody enjoys traffic jams, so our courses and destinations are designed with fluidity in mind. Being the fastest runner might not mean you win the race, as the clues and challenges will alter at each checkpoint.
Participants will have the option of running the 5km course, or walking – that’s up to you. You are free to use any method at your disposal to solve the clues and find the destinations (think smart phone, tablet, phone a friend, ask locals etc.), but you must reach them by foot (no bikes, skateboards, busses, taxis etc.)
At each checkpoint, you will have a task you need to complete – this could be a fitness challenge, a clue to solve, or an activity to overcome. You'll get to see corners and a history of the city you probably didn't know existed, and you'll have a blast doing it!
Teams will be made up of 2 people, so when you buy your ticket, you are buying a team of 2 participants, $60 per team to enter into the race ($30pp).
The race will begin, and end in Martin Place, so you will be able to participate in your lunch break, and be back in the office in under a few hours! Check in and packet pick up starts at 11:00 AM and race will start promptly at 12:00 PM You will need to bring a smart phone, ID and a pen or pencil. Everyone gets an event shirt and sponsor provided swag.
The winning team each day will win a goodie bag full of crazy-good sponsored items, which will be to the value of $500!
