The 6-7km course will be around farmland – there will be mud! Using your map and clue sheet, your team will search for checkpoints by foot – this is a running/walking race only.

Our family had the best fun getting wet, breathless, muddy and scientific!

The course includes mystery activities that are designed to be completed and count towards your teams’ points.
Once you complete the mystery activity, points will be added to your clue sheet by officials. Please note, if you choose not to complete the activity, then your team will not be awarded the points.
The course is a secret until the morning of the race when teams receive their maps at registration. This is when your team can begin planning and strategizing.
Frazzled Kiwi course will be around Farmland. You will be searching for check points. This is a running/walking race only.
You may not receive any help from outside sources. All team members must stay together at ALL times.
PLEASE DO NOT SHARE ANSWERS WITH OTHER TEAMS.
Frazzled Kiwi is a timed race. The clock will start at the beginning of the race and your time to complete will be taken when your team has crossed the finish line.
You have up to 3 hours to collect as many points as possible. Use your time well as you will not get points for finishing early (you may as well be out there getting more points). If a team decides to stop for a rest the clock still continues. In the case where teams are tied in points, the first team across the finish will win.
The idea is to get all points. If you finish over 3 hours – you will not be eligible for a placing. There will be options to cut the course short so you can finish within the three hour cutoff.

Placings are based on points gained over the course after adjustments for lateness.
Prizes will be allocated according to numbers in each category.
