XRACE is like a giant board game brought to life - think The Amazing Race meets Monopoly. Teams are made up of a parent and child aged 6 to 13 years, and you must race together side-by-side.
Date: Saturday 14th or Sunday 15th March 2019.
Start Time: From 2pm on Saturday and 10am on Sunday.
Start Location: Thomson Park (93 Marine Parade, New Brighton).
Cost: $66 per team (1 adult and 1 child) and $15 for Nippers (3 to 6 years). Family passes (2 teams) are also available.
The best part about XRACE is that it is totally inclusive. Challenges are a combination of physical, technical, mental and creative. There are sections your child will excel in and sections you must work together.
You don't even need to be super-fit or sporty to excel at XRACE. It’s your choice whether you run or walk your way around the course. All you need to do is be prepared for the best family bonding experience ever.

The Nippers Challenge is a very special XRACE - just for the little ones aged under 6 years.
Nippers are the curtain-raiser and start 30 minutes before the main XRACE.
Parents are welcome to charge over the course with them, or let your little Nipper loose with organisers taking careful care of them on the course.
