The Starlight Captains and the Starlight Rooms provide an oasis for kids and families who really need something to smile about.
There will be PRIZES for best intergalactic - dressed teams, so get your creative hats on ASAP!
For those not familiar with Metrogaining, think Orienteering meets Scavenger hunt, where your team (2-5 people) try to get as many points as possible in the time limit you choose:
- 3 Hour Minigaine - Walking or running this is a good starter Metrogaine, and is very family friendly. Kids under 10 can be on bikes if joining parent/s on foot!
- 6 Hour Metrogaine - Walking or running (for the truly hardcore) this event will finish after dark, to add extra challenge!
- 4 Hour Cyclegaine - Teams on bikes! A chance to cover more of the area and go for really big scores! Maybe, just maybe, you can get them all???
In all events, your team can set their own pace, rest as much or as little as you need and visit as many interesting places on the map as you like - this one will offer lots of options for a cold drink or a coffee if you need it!
Entries close Weds April 3, but entries will be capped, so get your team together ASAP so you don't miss out. Entry forms are attached!
