Welcome to the Happy Staffie Rescue Race4Home.
What is R4H
Race 4 home is a charity challenge where you are dropped at a secret location somewhere in the UK and you have to make your way back to a designated finish point. Sounds easy doesn't it? Well it won't be when you can't spend any money getting back!
When does R4H take place?
Saturday 20th July 2019
Where does R4H start from?
Our rehoming centre in Kidderminster, Worcestershire (DY11 Postcode)
What time do we leave Kidderminster?
All contestants leave our rehoming centre at 6.00am
How does it work?
Teams made up of 4 people are dropped at a secret location around 100 miles away from the start point (scary or what?). All teams are then required to answer 10 not so easy questions correctly before they can start making their way back to the start point without using any money.
What transport can I use?
That's totally up to you as long as you don't have to pay for it.
What do I wear?
You can wear whatever you like on the day but we would recommend fancy dress as this will help you get support from people you want to help you get back, it will also help identify other teams in the area. And above all it will give people a good laugh as they drive past you and wave.
The team (with all original members) arriving first at the start point in Kidderminster.
What do I win?
The first team back to base with all it's original members receives a team trophy, certificate and to name a stray dog coming into our care. We know it's hardly ITV's Saturday Night Takeaway prize quality but hey, you can't name a dog on there can you?
What happens if I can't make it back in time?
You get left there!! Only joking our team will collect you if you call in for help.
Can I cheat?
Er NO what a silly question!!! Every hour or so teams will have to check in with base and send photos of what transport they are using (or not as the case may be). Any team found cheating will be locked in a kennel and receive dirty looks from our volunteers and the dogs for 20 minutes, no one wants that do they?
How much does it cost to take part?
Teams will be expected to gain sponsorship collectively to the equivalent of £50 per member. (Eg a team with 4 members will be expected to collect sponsorship of at least £200 in total and this is payable on the day of the event)
