City Scramble @ Newcastle 

Multi venue event.

Easy online registration.

5k or 10k options.

Great pre race info via website, social media, emails and texts.

Basic idea - Map of route and clue locations given few days before & a more detailed one sent on the day. Choose a start point, run to first clue location, solve the clue and get a letter. After visiting all the clue locations and working out the clues you unscramble the letters to work out the finish location. Selfie at the finish location and work GPS/strava run data sent to organiser to show completion and time added to the results page. Bespoke medal sent out a few days later.

Fun event, something different. Can be run in groups or solo. Can run the shortest route or go scenic. Can try a quick run or a leisurely plod round. All up to you.
