We are inviting 10 teams of 4 to register and participate for amazing prizes throughout the Race plus, thanks to our sponsors:  Clayton Utz;the Law Society of Western Australia; Blue City Mediations; and Cowan Legal, we are offering a first prize of $500; second prize of $250 and third prize of $100.  The registration fee per team is only $20.00 ($5.00 per member) and teams can be from a school, workplace, club or just a group of friends or family members. 

During the Race teams will receive information about the law and legal and associated services while having to complete challenging activities in order to progress to the next stage of the Race.  These challenges will take the teams to various local agencies who work within the legal system.  As the teams successfully complete each challenge they will be given clues that will lead them to the next location. 

The Race will officially start at 8:30 am at Maitland Park and, after visiting all agencies involved;it will finish at Edith Cowan Square where the Prize Ceremony and a sausage sizzle will take place.
