XRACE is a mystery adventure race where parent and child aged 6-14 race together, locate and complete 10 mystery challenges; racing the clock and all the other family teams. A team is made up of two people:
The challenges range from physical (like tug-of-war) to mental (like the memory challenge) to knowledge based (like the music challenge). The challenges change from year to year and course to course. No XRACE is ever the same.
Returning XRACE families, we look forward to welcoming you to your local event where we will be mixing a brand new set of challenges with a few of our favourites from last season.
To new families, we offer you this promise – a chance to come together with your son and daughter in an event AS EQUALS. After over 80 events in four countries it is clear: no other event encourages self-esteem in children and helps develop family bonds like XRACE.
