THE 60 MINUTE FESTIVE DASH

A SOCIALLY DISTANCED CHRISTMAS PARTY ALTERNATIVE

"Great concept. Thoroughly enjoyed the morning and can’t wait for the next event! Best thing to come out of lockdown so far!"

HELEN, DESIGN MY NIGHT REVIEW

PLAY ANYWHERE, IN MULTIPLE LOCATIONS! WALK OR RUN!

Looking for a way to join your workforce together this Christmas? At this socially-distanced festive treasure hunt, you and your colleagues will compete against the clock, and each other, to find a list of suitably festive items out on the streets.

You'll compete in teams of up to five; members of a team can all be based in different locations, they can run or walk it, and there will be a mixture of urban and rural items - so it really is a great way to get your whole team involved, wherever they are.

 

The tech allows you to see how your teammates are getting on - so you are all working together to find your treasure. When it's all over, we'll tot up the scores whilst you kick back and relax (hopefully with some mulled wine in hand) and then we'll crown the champions of your company's 60 Minute Festive Dash.

This is available for private bookings on a date/time of your choice.

HOW IT WORKS

VIRTUAL BRIEFING

You'll be given a list of 50 items that, between you, you and your team will need to find out on the streets

THE CLOCK STARTS

You'll have 60 minutes to find the 50 items take photos of them, and add them to your online Team Sheet. Only your legs can get you there. No cycling or driving.

GAME OVER

After 60 minutes the clock will stop and you'll no longer be able to add photos to your Team Sheet. We'll tot up the scores whilst you have an (optional, virtual) drink with your teams and then crown the champions! 

CHECK AVAILABILITY

We'll create a private and personalized festive treasure hunt for your company. So get in touch with a date/time of your choice and we'll let you know if we're available.

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

Is it suitable for walkers as well as runners?


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 players 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 either organise your colleagues into teams or we can arrange and randomly pick the teams. We'll aim for 5 people per team, but based on numbers there may be some teams of 4 too.




How does the virtual briefing work?


Before the event, you'll get an email with a link to a video conference (we use Google Meet) - your task master will tell you more about the rules of the game and give you your list of 60 items to find out on the streets between your team. At the end of the briefing, you'll receive that list via email too along with your Team Sheet.




How do we upload our mission?


At the end of the briefing, we'll email your team captain a link to your Team Sheet. This is in Google Sheets - so all team members will need to have the free Google Sheets app downloaded. We recommend that the Team Captain adds their Team Sheet to the Description in the WhatsApp group - so it's easily accessible for all players. On the mission your team will take photos of each of the 60 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).

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.




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 and the Team Sheet. Your Team Sheet will be emailed to you at the end of the briefing. It's how your team will plan their mission, track progress and it's how we'll mark your mission. Please download the free Google Sheets app on your phone to use it - all team members. It's really important that all members of your team are comfortable with this on the day. We'll provide each team with their own practice sheet to get to grips with it before the mission - but it's super easy, don't worry!




And my colleagues can really join from anywhere?


Yes - we've designed the Dash to be played in any location. There will be a mixture of natural and manmade objects to find, so every team member will be valuable.




Can you give some examples of things we might need to find?


A bell A Christmas tree A santa hat

WE'RE EXPERTS ON TREASURE HUNTING

We developed our 90 Minute Dash in the spring to keep our community connected, moving and having fun. It was so popular that we hold it every month for hundreds of "Dashers". We've streamlined the tech, forming the perfect list and now we're ready to celebrate Christmas with you. Take a look at the video for the 90 Minute Dash.

"A great day, especially when great days are hard to come by at the moment. Fun with friends and family in the safest way."

DANIEL, DESIGN MY NIGHT REVIEW

"Even under Covid restrictions it’s a fun way to get family and friends involved in a team challenge. Lots of laughs and rushing around during the Dash and nice to compare everyone’s experiences afterwards.

DAWN, DESIGN MY NIGHT REVIEW

"Great concept. Thoroughly enjoyed the morning and can’t wait for the next event! Best thing to come out of lockdown so far!"
