The Next Level in Adventure Racing - Who Pairs Wins. Price includes overnight camping at the Glanusk Estate.

Marco Polo Events, the creators of the hugely successful UK Challenge, invite you to the UK’s first ever pairs adventure competition, The Brain Race. The only physical challenge that will also test your intelligence and strategy. Pairs will be put to the test in four stages of physical and intelligence-based challenges across two days, designed by our expert team to test a combination of brain and brawn. The pair who best combine these two key elements will be rewarded with the ultimate prize – crowned the first ever Brain Race champions. The Brain Race is more than just a physical test, and while speed and endurance may play a role in your team’s strategy, each pair must think carefully as to how they approach each stage. The key component is time: teams will be rewarded for finishing each stage quickly, however there will be time bonuses available based on the optional completion of intellectual puzzles and challenges. These puzzles will vary in difficulty, allowing each team to decide upon a unique strategy dependent on their individual strengths and weaknesses. To see a full breakdown of each stage, see the event website: https://brainrace.co.uk/the-event/
