A new race format

6th May 2015

We are excited to announce that we have slightly changed the format of the Paddy Pallin Urban in 2015 to make it even more enjoyable for everyone.

There will be no set number of checkpoints that have to be collected. All checkpoints will be allocated a certain number of points. As you complete the checkpoint your team will be allocated the points. Winners will be determined by the team that has collected the most points in the least amount of time. This allows you to determine your own route and the quickest way to reach all the checkpoints. Checkpoints can still be retrieved in any order.

Have a look at the checkpoints section for more information

Changes to “Racing” and “Social” categories

Which Category is for you?

Social: With 4 hours to collect as many points as possible, the social category is for those teams that are not wanting to race for line honours and would like to spend the day traipsing through the CBD. We recommend the social category for teams who would like to bring children along.

Racing: Notoriously this has been the most competitive with teams looking for any advantage they can get to get themselves a podium finish. Racing teams will have 6 hours to collect as many points as possible before heading back to HQ.
