How To Play?
The contestants are required to have smartphones, which they will use to receive clues and input their answers to the Gamemaster.
On the day of the race, the teams will receive the location of the starting line where they will be introduced to the game by the Gamemaster himself. Once they've all been briefed on the game, the Gamemaster will send them the first task, which the teams will need to read carefully and decipher the fastest way to complete the challenge.
Once all levels have been completed, the teams will receive the location of the finish line.
To celebrate our 3rd year, we have teamed up with what3words an app which simplifies communicating locations and attributing addresses all over the world.
But, be aware, penalties are attributed to teams who disobey the rules. This can change the outcome of the order the teams arrived at the finish line.
Cheating includes calling your friends and family asking for help, searching on the internet, skipping challenges when not completed and/or using other means of transit not specified by the Gamemaster. You can and are encouraged to ask for help from people on the streets. Cheating will result in disqualification.

Running will only hinder you. This is not the type of race which requires you to rush head on into obstacles both figuratively and literally. For every minute you run, you receive a 20min penalty on your arrival time. Besides, if you run off the camera, you won't be on TV. Stay together at all times.
