Entry fees are €2 per person. Maps and question sheets will be provided at the start.

Your “Quest” is to navigate to up to 20 location points on the map of Nicosia (within the city walls) and answer a simple, non-cryptic question at each location (eg – what is the colour of the door at number 18? How many mannequins in the shop window?). Each question is worth either 10, 20 or 30 points. There will also be a BONUS Question at each event worth 50 points. The total time allowed is 60 minutes. There will be 5 penalty point for every minute late back. So please make sure you are back within an hour from your start time.

You will need a pen to mark your answers on the question sheet. You are advised to wear comfortable walking/running shoes and light coloured clothing (ideally reflective) for extra visibility. A small torch may be useful to assist your eyesight when reading the map. Electronic timing will be used. Individuals and teams of up to four people will be permitted. Points will be shared equally among team members. Children under twelve must be accompanied by an adult. All participants take part at their own risk. The organiser’s decisions are final.
