XRACE is a mystery adventure race where parent and child aged 6 to 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:

  • an adult; dad or mum or a trusted relative or family friend
  • and a child aged between 6 and 14 years of age.

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.
