Ready, set, go!

If you're the adventurous type and looking for a fun activity for the whole family, look no further than the New Zealand Home Loans XRACE.

XRACE is a mystery adventure race where parent and child aged 6-14 race together, locate and complete 10 mystery challenges, including a Resene paint challenge, and race the clock – with the fastest and luckiest crowned XRACE champion.

Teams start together, race the course together challenging other family teams – completing all challenges and crossing their magical finish line – side-by-side. It's like a board game brought to life – think The Amazing Race meets Monopoly.

You don't have to be super fit or super sporty, as the challenges cater to all skills. A typical XRACE course covers around 3-4 kms of total distance, and teams can choose to go flat out or walk or jog between challenges. There will be some physical challenges, technical, mental and creative. 

While the 2016 season of X-Race has already started there are still events in a number of areas. Visit for more information.
