HOW IT WORKS

VIRTUAL BRIEFING

You'll be given a list of 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 in the Dash app. Only your legs can get you there. No cycling or driving.

GAME OVER

After 90 minutes the clock will stop and you'll no longer be able to add photos into the app. You will be emailed a breakdown of your results and winners announced via email after all teams have Dashed, and the Dash-Board will be updated.

REVIEWS

"Loved it. Such a fun event, whole team really enjoyed it. We'll absolutely take part in July and future events. Thanks. Sarah"

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."

FAQs

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?


No! In fact, we created this challenge with the aim of keeping you connected to those you can't be physically with at this time. You could have 5 team mates all based in different continents if you can manage the time difference. We recommend having a WhatsApp group to communicate during the challenge.




Up to 5 per team you say?


You can have teams of 2, 3, 4 or 5 searchers on your team. 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 £19.50 per team, so if you have more people, please just enter another team. Some treasure hunters prefer not to separate. If that's the case please just count 'searching parties' as players and ensure that all members of each searching party are in each photo.




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?


Before the event, you'll get an email with a link to a pre-recorded video briefing, where your task master will tell you more about the rules of the game.




How do we upload our mission?


You'll receive instructions in your confirmation email on how to download our brand new Dash app. In the run up to your Dash, your team captain will receive a unique join code via email to circulate amongst your team mates. Inputting this join code grants you access to the Dash. You'll be able to have a quick practice before the clock starts. On the mission your team will take photos of each of the things on the list. And to make sure that you don't sneak extra players in, we'll ask for those photos to include a member of the team (i.e. a selfie). After 90 minutes, your mission will end and you'll no longer be able to add photos into the app. That's it - your pics will automatically be 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. We recommend having a WhatsApp group to share pictures and progress on the day. You'll also need to download our Dash app - you'll receive more info about this in your confirmation email.




When do I add our team name?


We'll ask you for this on the day - so get thinking! You'll add it in the app before starting your Dash.




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
