Following on the runaway success of last year's race, this year there are even more obstacles and 2 racing categories: The Team Event (adults and teens 13yrs+) - 8km, 14 obstacles and The Family Event (with children 7-12 years old) - 4km, 6 obstacles.
The cheesy and exciting urban adventure event incorporates local Kangaroo Point landmarks, team-building activitie and fun-themed obstacles with names like Feisty Fondue, Big Cheese, Ratatouille Rebel and the torturous Rat Trap and notorious Big Cheese.
Teams of up to 4 are given a large inflatable 'cheese' that they have to protect from the pesky pest patrols without getting ir-RAT-ional as they tackle from 6 to 14 obstacles and finally cross the finish line.
The fun doesn't end there with an after-party in Captain Burke Park - The Ratty Festival - with wine, beer, markets, live music and of course, plenty of cheese.
The YMCA Rat Race will help support the valuable YMCA Kids’ Breakfast Program, so as well as having a cheesy good time entrants are doing a good thing for the community. Over 25% of Aussie kids go to school hungry, and the aim is for the Breakfast Program to be extended from 89 to 200 schools within the next 2 years.
Participants are encouraged to ‘get your Dirty Rat on’ by dressing up in anything rat or cheese-related, with teams able to win prizes for best dressed.
Teams are encouraged in groups of four, but two or three are also accepted. *Don't miss the special discount offer for Must Do Brisbane readers of 10% off, using the code MUSTDOBRIS2017
