What's it all about

The Barretstown Amazing Race is a team challenge event inspired by our “Press Play” Campaign.

Childhood stops for seriously ill children and by taking part in this event, you and your colleagues will be helping Barretstown to “Press Play” on their childhood again!

The Barretstown Amazing Race will give your team the chance to take part in a challenge event based on our camp activities – high ropes, canoeing, archery and much more!

Companies will compete against each other, trying to gain as many points as possible in a hope of being crowned the Barretstown Camp Champions.

The winning company will take home the coveted Barretstown Cup to take pride of place in their office until the following year.

All this while raising funds so seriously ill children can enjoy their childhood again!

X are the generous sponsors of The Barretstown Amazing Race and will have some tasty treats on offer at our BBQ After Party in our amazing dining hall – Elizabeth’s TreeHouse.
