The year is 1848 and Gold has been discovered in California by James W. Marshall. You and your team are eager to get your hands on the gold so together, you'll need to solve clues and challenges to move your way across the states of America. Starting in New York, the aim to get through the challenges as quick as you can, in a race against your other teams and time! Who will be the Gold Rush Race winners?
What happens on the day?
Each person taking part in the quiz will receive a link via email to a meeting on Zoom. Once logged on, we will allocate people into their teams and brief the group on the activity. All teams are setting off from New York and to move on from each state, teams must complete a set challenge. Each team will be assigned a separate break out room where they'll be able to talk to each other about the challenges and confer on answers; before teams send across their answers to their own specific State master back in the main meeting room. Different States will have different levels of difficulty and teams will have to plot their route very carefully. The group will be able to see an interactive map that will show which state all the teams are in. It is a race against the other teams! The first team to make it across America and arrive in California first would get the gold and will be crowned the winners!
