BucketRace is a Scavenger Race around London, where teams compete against one another by completing tasks on the list (or BucketList) provided. BucketRace's goal is for participants to discover new places, activities, and hidden gems within London while meeting like-minded people and competing in a fun and friendly environment.
On Game Day
We meet at – Golden Square, London, Greater London, W1F 9HR. The location is easily accessible by tube or bus. The nearest tube station is Piccadilly Circus. Once you arrive you will receive your list and there’s a brief introduction to go over the rules and FAQ’s. Once the clock strikes 12:30 the competition will start and you'll be racing off to best your opponents while discovering the hidden gems of London. After 3 hours we’ll meet at the finish line where there will be a round-up of the scores and a presentation with trophies and prizes.
Teams can be no larger than 5 people
Teams must stick together at all times
Each photo should include the whole team; however, one member can be excluded if they’re taking the photo/video
Tasks are divided into Miscellaneous and Location categories
Location tasks are mutually exclusive. You cannot score tasks within multiple locations
Tasks must be submitted before the end of BucketRace to be counted
For late arrival to the finish, teams lose 150 points every 10 minutes
Any team more than 20 minutes late will lose all their points
Any teams caught cheating will be disqualified
Teams with the most points at the end of BucketRace wins
What you need
All you need is a well-charged smartphone (more than one per team is advised). BucketRace will provide the rest.
Each task carries a specific amount of points based on its difficulty, location, and BucketRace classification (e.g. location, miscellaneous, or bonus). The location tasks score the least; however, completing enough of them unlocks hefty bonus points. Miscellaneous tasks score more points, but they don’t offer any bonus incentive. So choose wisely!
It’s also worth noting that most of the BucketRace location tasks have been written in order of the quickest route. The exceptions are the final few tasks within each section, which have been chosen to fit the culture of each area and can be performed anywhere within that location. BucketRace lasts for 4 hours. Any teams who arrive at the finish late will forfeit a cumulative 50 points every 10 minutes.
There are Location tasks specific to regions of London such as: Find a taxi serving coffee in Shoreditch, find the giant Dragon in Camden, and build a human pyramid in Hyde Park. There are general London based tasks such as: arrive at Big Ben when the clock strikes 14:00, hail a black cab, and start a party on an open-top bus. And there are miscellaneous tasks such as, wear a toothpaste moustache, wear a toilet seat around your neck, get a high score on a video game
Tasks are submitted through the wonderful world of social media, using photos and/or videos as evidence. More specifically we calculate real-time scores using Twitter's #Hashtag function. That way teams can use their own mobile phones and we can give you hourly updates on how each team is performing. Twitter is free to download and use. If you don’t already have a twitter account, please ask one of our staff to help you create one before BucketRace begins.
• Each tweet must contain the following: Name of the task, points value, #BucketRace, #TeamName, @BucketRace, and a photo/video of the task.
Example: Stand in the corner of an elevator facing the wrong way while people enter, 50 pts, @BucketRace, #TeamName #BucketRace.
We can also provide customised lists for private parties. Simply contact us with your requirements and we will provide you with a quote.
