X-Race


   
This weekend we got out for X-race - a family team building race where you run in teams of 1 adult, 1 child. Over the 5 kms, there are 10 obstacles - sewing buttons, dancing, building lego and many more. The child also leads the blind folded adult, directing only with their voice. As I had the blindfold, I can't tell you how far it was, but it felt a very long time. Depending on the age of your child, it's also quite scary!!





It was held in Newington Armory, and as I'd never been before, I took a few pics on the way home. It's really quite a lovely setting with lots of interesting curiosities. I think we'll be back with the bikes in the School Holidays!

It was a great way to spend a Sunday, and have a fabulous time as a family.

In a rare change, we just played together. You could say we were all loving life in that moment! And you? What did you get up to this week?

  1. Oh I'd never heard of this before - what a fun activity! My boys are much too young at the moment but I'm keeping this in mind for when they're older, they do them nearby actually!

  10. Wow - what an awesome concept. My son would LOVE to do this, but sadly, we don't live in Sydney. Now that I know about the event, I'll keep an eye out for one closer to home. Thanks Lydia :)

  11. Wow, you've been doing a lot of exploring and venturing about lately Lydia. I think it's great - also doing stuff involving the 'whole' family... if that makes sense. A lovely idea.

  12. Well that sure sounds like fun! What a great thing for a family to play together. It doesn't happen often enough really does it?! The only thing I can think of that is different that I've done lately is I actually went and did a photo shoot! Faced a fear and did a photo shoot for a friend who owns a yoga studio. All went well. My mind makes things much scarier then they need be! #TeamLovinLife

  16. Oh my goodness, that sounds like fun! But yes, scary being led "blind" by a child. A great way to bring out the inner child no doubt!
    Thanks for linking.
    See you next week!
