XRACE Christchurch

A family of four crossing the finish line at a  previous XRace event.XRACE is like a giant board game brought to life - think The Amazing Race meets Monopoly. Teams are made up of a parent and child aged 6 to 13 years, and you must race together side-by-side.

The Nippers Challenge is a very special XRACE - just for the little ones aged under 6 years with a parent. This event is designed for younger siblings who have a brother or sister taking part in the main XRACE event. The cost is $15 per child.

The sport division is for the keenest XRACE supporters that may have gotten a little bit too old for mum or dad to keep up. These kids love XRACE and want to keep racing competitively. The minimum age is 10 years for this event.

Date: Saturday 23rd March 2024.
Start Time: 9am for the Nippers event. First wave from 10am.
Start Location: Thomson Park (93 Marine Parade, New Brighton).

  • $15 for a team in the Nippers event.
  • $64.70 for a sport division child team (children of combined age greater than or equal to 24 years).
  • $74.70 for a duo team (1 adult and 1 child).
  • $92.16 for a 3-person team (1 adult and 2 children).

The best part about XRACE is that it is totally inclusive. Challenges are a combination of physical, technical, mental and creative. There are sections your child will excel in and sections you must work together.

You don't even need to be super-fit or sporty to excel at XRACE. It’s your choice whether you run or walk your way around the course. All you need to do is be prepared for the best family bonding experience ever.
