THE 90 MINUTE DASH
Join Secret London Runs' socially distanced treasure hunt! Dash out on the streets, anywhere in the world, with anyone you like - a great way to stay connected to those you can't be with in person right now.
Just £19.50 for a team of up to 5!
HOW IT WORKS
You'll be given a list of 60 items that your team will need to find out on the streets.
THE CLOCK STARTS
You'll have 90 minutes to find the 60 items take photos of them, and add them to your Team Sheet. Only your legs can get you there. No cycling or driving.
After 90 minutes the clock will stop and you'll no longer be able to add photos to your Team Sheet. Within a few hours, you will be emailed a breakdown of your results. Winners announced via email later in the day and the Dash-Board will be updated.
All the scores from these 4 Dashes will be added together to crown a winner of the 2021 Dash. The league is for those who take their treasure hunting seriously and want a challenge each quarter.

"JUST FOR FUN"
For those who favour a more relaxed Dash each month. Perfect for families and those who would prefer a smaller list of items to hunt.

Can walkers join my team?
Yes, you can have a team of all walkers, a mixture of runners and walkers, or all runners. Walkers with good local knowledge are just as valuable players as fast runners.
Do all my teammates need to be in the same place?
Up to 5 per team you say?
You can have teams of 2, 3, 4 or 5 people participate. We'll be giving prizes for each of those categories on the day. Please don't sneak extra people onto your team - we will have ways of detecting this! The price is £19 per team, so if you have more people, please just enter another team.
Can children join in?
Absolutely! And I bet you're wondering how that affects team numbers? If your children need to be accompanied by another player on the team, then they don't add to your total of 5 players. If your children are older and will be scavanging solo, they do count towards your total.
How does the virtual briefing work?
How do we upload our mission?
Your team will add their photos to the Team Sheet as you go. When the clock stops, you'll no longer be able to add photos to your sheet, and that's it - it will be automatically saved in our system.
So only the team captain needs to sign up?
Yes - it's £19.50 per team and only the team captain needs to sign up. We know that things can change (especially in times as uncertain as these), so you don't need commitment from your teammates until the day of the event. Your team can consist of 2, 3, 4 or 5 members, so no pressure to fill it up. There are prizes for each of those categories as well. As the team captain, you will be responsible for circulating information to the rest of your teammates. So do make sure you have the right contact details for each of them.
What technology/equipment do we need?
Each team member needs a phone with a camera and 4G.
When do I add our team name?
We'll ask you for this on the day - so get thinking! You'll add it to your Team Sheet before submitting.
Will the lists be the same at each event?
We'll bring a new list to each month's Dash - January, March, June, September and December.
And I can really play anywhere?
Pretty much - yes! If you live in a hamlet, you might find it tricky. We'd recommend driving to the nearest town or city if that's the case.
Can you give some examples of things we might need to find?
An orange door
A pink flower
A building that's more than 200 years old

SARAH, DESIGN MY NIGHT REVIEW
"Fun and inclusive event. Really easy to follow the instructions and upload photos. A great way to involve all the family in different locations. Can’t wait for the next one!"
MICHELLE, DESIGN MY NIGHT REVIEW
"A great event. We loved running round trying to collect the items that are always in plain sight but hard to find when you need them. It really made us more aware of our surroundings and was great fun. Would love to do it again."
MATT, DESIGN MY NIGHT REVIEW
"My husband and I did the 90 Minute Dash twice now and had so much fun both times. It‘s a great way to get out a bit and explore your neighbourhood. And you don‘t have to run at all and still find a lot of stuff."
