Starting at Save-On-Foods Memorial Centre, all teams will meet and get all the items they need to start their adventure! Check-in will occur from 9:00 - 9:30 am.
All teams will receive identical Race Packages including maps, instructions, clue sheets and team passport - all personalized with your team number. The Race Pass identifies your team number (randomly assigned).
There will be a starting challenge inside the arena and you will be allowed to leave only after accomplishing your challenge and check out. Starting at 10:00 am, you will have 4 hours to complete as many challenges and checkpoints within the time limit. You will be gaining points from navigation and from accomplishing the challenges. There are a number of checkpoints and they can be visited in any order. At some checkpoints you will have challenges. By accomplishing a challenge you can earn valuable bonus points. You can do the challenge or decide to skip it and save precious time - the decision will be only yours. You must finish at or before 2pm. For every minute late you will have penalty deductions (20 points per minute), so watch your time.
