Next Event 22 March 2020 !
 
Introducing the #GCRAMBLE !
 
In conjunction with the Rotary Club's of Surfers Sunrise and Griffith Gold Coast, Gold Coast Rotary will stage the next Gold Coast Ramble on 22 March 2020 starting from Macintosh Island Park.  It will be a 2 hour event commencing at 10am with teams exploring Main Beach and Surfers Paradise.
 
The Gold Coast Ramble for Charity is a unique and innovative team event that appeals to corporate, family and friendship teams. The Ramble is an event that aligns with the Gold Coast lifestyle, being an outdoor event open to all levels of fitness.  Primarily a fun community event but with an element of competition that enthuses and motivates teams to spend the entire allocated time finding as many checkpoints as possible. 
 
The Ramble can best be described as a car rally / treasure hunt on foot or public transport, with teams of costumed participants exploring the parks, malls and streets of the Gold Coast suburbs following clues to locate 20 to 30 checkpoints.
 
At each checkpoint, the team use the Gold Coast Ramble App to receive a question to answer about the immediate area – this could relate to the heritage, the natural environment, street art or current infrastructure.  What better way to discover and learn about the lesser-visited nooks and crannies of the City of Gold Coast?  Teams are directed to places of historical interest, to cultural precincts and newer developments, highlighting local stories and the diversity of each of the communities explored such as  Southport Heritage Walk, China Town and historical signage along Surfers Paradise Promenade.
 
Random draw and best costume prizes reward participation.  For the more competitive, completion of all checkpoint challenges in the allotted time involves strategy and teamwork.  The event also serves as a platform to raise money for local charities with extra points awarded for fundraising efforts !  The inaugural event helped raise over $7,000 for the local community.
