Today is the main event.  THE AMAZING ROCK-RACE where Teams are tasked to solve clues, navigate themselves in foreign areas, interact with locals, and perform physical and mental challenges that highlight aspects of Niue’s culture, history, and economy.    Teams will need to out-smart and outrace their fellow competitors across a pre-determined route that will see them stopping at numerous checkpoints with the ultimate goal of getting to the finish line FIRST. Whilst the race is a timed event, it’s not as simple as
crossing the finish line first!
