Would you like to get your friends and families together and participate in a fun team event? Our Rotary club is staging the Gold Coast Ramble for Charity. The Ramble can best be described as a car rally on foot or public transport, with teams of costumed participants exploring the parks, malls and streets of the Gold Coast Villages, inaugurally Southport, Surfers Paradise and Broadbeach, following clues to locate 40 to 50 checkpoints over 4 hours.

At each checkpoint, the team use the Gold Coast Ramble App to download a challenge about the immediate area – this could relate to the heritage, the natural environment, street art or current infrastructure. The Ramble is an event that aligns with the Gold Coast lifestyle, being an outdoor event open to all levels of fitness.

Random draw and best costume prizes reward participation. For the more competitive, completion of all checkpoint challenges in 4 hours involves strategy and teamwork. For families with younger children, there will be 2-hour event with 20 checkpoints. Registrations are now open so get your team together, plan your costumes and get ready for Gold Coast's 'Amazing Race'.

What does it cost?
This is a team event with a captain and between one and five additional team members. The more team members, the more brains you'll have to utilise when solving clues! Also, we've found the more people you have the more fun the whole team has! Register a team and add team members later. Students and holders of pension concession cards are entitled to a 50% discount.

The 2-hour Ramble is suited to families with younger children or teams with less mobile members. There are no further discounts but children under 5 are free.

Your team is encouraged to support one of the following charities through seeking sponsorship donations. The incentive being that each donation will earn additional event points – every $10 donation gains the team an additional point up to a maximum of 50 points ($500 team sponsorship).
