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 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.
