The day

What to expect


Real-life scenarios. Real-time tasks. In an exhilarating race against the clock. With a strong story line running throughout the day your decisions count. All teams are briefed together, how you respond is up to your strategy and strengths.

A unique experience

No other event offers this unique combination of real-life pressure and real-time tasks in such a fun, tough, memorable day. You'll have to talk with officials, trade points for materials and partner with other teams.


Imagine you're there. Tracking band on your wrist, just finished the briefing. You've got too much to do in the time available. It's a truly immersive experience.


You'll cover around 10k on foot or 20k on bike depending on your strategy. Once you're briefed, it's all up to you and when the competition hots up - you'll be pushing hard!
