The MCR Games is a series of weekly challenges in Manchester throughout the November lockdown. The challenges will all take place in or near Manchester city centre. As there will be prizes involved (!!!) we're charging a small entry fee for PAYG Members.

Each challenge is completely stand-alone, so you don't need to have entered other week's challenges to take part in this one. You can book on to and take part in the challenge any time throughout the week.

Week 1: 50 Windows of Creativity (walk)

Week 2: Castlefield - Media City loop (run)

Week 3: GPS Art (walk)

Week 4: Inner ring road time trial (cycle)


Week 3 (Mon 23rd Nov - Sun 29th Nov) - GPS Art

(This event has been amended from the original challenge)

This event is open to anybody from anywhere. It's not particularly Manchester specific - you just need to live near some space and have an app/device that can track your route. To keep this challenge somewhat Manchester-themed, we'll be focussing on a Manchester icon: the worker bee. For this challenge you're welcome to walk, run, or cycle - but make sure you're recording on Strava (or similar GPS tracking app).

The Challenge: Draw a bee! Walk, run, or cycle a route that when mapped by Strava will show a lovely picture of a bee. The bigger your route, the closer it will be to what you're expecting it to look like! You could do a walk in a park, or cycle a combination of streets and open spaces. Entirely up to you.

What you can expect: To look silly completing this challenge

What I can expect: Funny-looking bees, as in picture 2.

Challenge ends Sunday 29th November 18:30 with a Zoom call to chat about the challenge and congratulate the winner! Joining details sent out on the day.

Good luck!
