Sit ups, planks, squats… sure, repetition spells muscles but it also spells b-o-r-e-d-o-m.
If you’re looking to shake things up a bit, local company Secret Cities has just launched a series of scavenger hunts that combine fitness with exploring. So you can sweat, explore and get some vitamin D, all at the same time!
The next three are scheduled for November and December – Manly (17th November, Balmain (1st December) and Chippendale (15th December).
Sign up on your own or as part of a team and you’ll be running around the city taking photographs, building human pyramids and basically reenacting the Amazing Race with each challenge. The bonus? You can explore your own neighbourhood (or a completely new one) and burn calories at the same time. Win-Win.
And did we mention you get a trophy if you win? A big shiny one the will look awesome on your bookcase (or around your neck 24/7 – it’s up to you).
Secret Cities is fast growing in reputation for being one of the best ways to explore the hidden side to Sydney, meet new people and have a fair bit of fun at the same time. The company also runs bespoke Scavenger Hunts – got a bucks or hens coming up? Or maybe a Xmas party? These guys are where it’s at.
Or you can sign up to their newsletter for details of their regular suburb hunts.
