Metrogaine Jo'burg

What is Metrogaine?

This is a fun, night-time, urban navigation event. Grab a map and clue sheet and enjoy running-walking about the streets as you look for answers to the clues. Here’s the thing… the map has no street names! Use the map to find the checkpoint locations and when you get there, read the clue and tick the correct answer option. Keep your thumb on where you are and your map correctly orientated to make sure that you don’t go 180° in the wrong direction!

SAFETY CONSIDERATIONS
This event is held in a suburb and as such you’ll be walking and running on roads and pavements. Due to the nature of this event, the route and traffic is not controlled. You are responsible for your own safety out there. Be cautious when crossing any road and look out for other pedestrians and cyclists. You also need to be alert to the usual urban hazards like missing drain covers and uneven paving.
