On the day
On arrival at the Rotary gazebo, we will provide you with the contestant pack consisting of:
A paper map showing the area of Chichester containing the locations
A list of WHAT3WORDS location addresses and associated clues to be solved at each location and a space for your answers.
At various points around the city you will find Rotary members wearing distinctive yellow tabards to
provide assistance, but not to solve clues!
On receiving the pack, your team name and start time will be recorded
All race locations are in the central Chichester area, using the map you will be able to plan your race route. You are free to decide the order in which you go to the locations and solve the clues.
When you return to the gazebo, we will record your end time.
Winner will be the team who has solved most clues correctly and completed the challenge in the shortest time. Prizes will be awarded to the winner and runner up.
Please observe social distancing rules and stay safe. Hand sanitizer will be provided at the gazebo. Only the team leader should go to the registration desk. Our main concern is the safety of contestants and the public. Therefore, we would ask that you are at all times considerate of other members of the public and do not put yourselves in danger or impede the thoroughfare.

What is what3words?
what3words is a really simple way to talk about location. They have assigned each 3m square in the world a unique 3 word address that will never change. For example ///filled.count.soap marks the exact entrance to what3words’ London headquarters. 3 word addresses are easy to say and share, and are as accurate as GPS coordinates.
Using the WHAT3WORDS application
WHAT3WORDS is an application used by many emergency services to locate addresses. It identifies a location to within 3 metres by a combination of 3 words.
For example the Chichester Cross monument at the junction of North, South, East and West Street is react.spaces.cups
Finding a location
To locate a position, open the application and enter the 3 word address into the search box and the app will return the location. You will be offered a choice of three locations identified by small variations of the 3 words, but of course, the one we want is located in Chichester.
Tip Be sure to separate each of the 3 words with a fullstop, no spaces eg. react.spaces.cups
Click on this choice and you will be taken to the location required on a map view.
Tip You can flip the view to satellite to provide additional information about the location
Moving from location to location
Once you have solved the clue for a location, note the answer on the results chart provided in your pack, then move on to the next location of your choice. It is completely your choice as to which order you solve the clues and for you to decide on a strategy that will result in a fast time. However the whole team must move from location to location together. You are not allowed to divide the team.
Tip Ensure your phone is fully charged at the start of the race
Tip Avoid using the navigate function in the application as it will drain your phone's battery
