What are the differences in categories?
Male, Mixed or Female teams can decide to enter the “Racing Category” or the “Social Category”. Both categories will be racing on the same course. Teams in the “Racing Category” will need to collect a higher ‘Points Target’ than teams in the “Social Category”. All teams will have the full 6 hours to reach their ‘Points Target’ and return to the Finish Line.
Which Category is for you?
Social: With 6 hours to collect the points required for your ‘Points Target’ the social category is for those teams that are not wanting to race for line honours and would like to spend the day traipsing throughout the CBD. We recommend the social category for teams who would like to bring children along.
Racing: Notoriously this has been the most competitive with teams looking for any advantage they can get to get themselves a podium finish. Racing teams will have 6 hours to reach the higher ‘Points Target’ and return to the finish line.
