With the District Race app in hand, participants have two hours to navigate their way through the city, collecting as many points as possible by clearing virtual checkpoints and challenges spread across eight districts - from Sai Wan to Wan Chai, set right in the heart of Hong Kong.
Each District offers a unique race experience, themed to that area. Start and finish points are located at Central Harbourfront Event Space.
With no set route and no set distance, participants can strategise and plan their own routes, choosing which checkpoints and challenges to clear that will maximise their point score.
There are three different types of challenges, namely Quiz, Time Trial, and Scan Challenge. Each challenge requires different skills to tackle it – speed, city knowledge, dexterity and problem-solving skills, and participants can choose which challenges to take on that play to their strengths.
Making the race more exciting is a live leaderboard built within the District Race app that tracks participants with the highest points in real time.
