Organiser's Description

The key component of the BrainRace is time: teams will be rewarded for finishing quickly, however there will be time bonuses available based on the optional completion of intellectual puzzles and challenges. These puzzles will vary in difficulty, allowing each team to decide upon a unique strategy dependent on their individual strengths and weaknesses.

The Race
The BrainRace is a fixed time, app-based event that will incorporate bonuses based on additional challenges completed.

As a pair you will have two hours to walk, jog, and run 5-10km between you, although you may choose to travel significantly further in order to achieve the optimal score!
