Different Peaks, Same Berghaus Top

I’ve been using mostly Berghaus Tech Tees for my #TaleOfTheTrail blog posts because of the Polygiene technology that keeps you fresh for longer hours outdoors.  I also use their trekking shoes which is so comfortable and has a good traction on any surface when I’m on the trails or on my climbs.  Berghaus has been an excellent compliment as I #LiveForAdventure.   Another adventure worth trying is the Berghaus Urban Adventure Games happening on November 15, 2014 at Globe Circuit Events Grounds in Makati City. The event coincides with the 2014 Banff Mountain Film Festival World Tour.

What’s Berghaus Urban Adventure Games?

That’s the first question that came into my mind.   This is a team game of 3 members plus one really important device which is your Google apps or iOS powered mobile phone.  This is the very first mobile app-based race format wherein challenges will be relayed via mobile phones as teams try to accumulate as much points as they can before the clock runs out.  Aside from being the first mobile app-based adventure game, it also tests the teams via mental and physical challenge where they go to various obstacles, test their strength in various CrossFit Stations, solve riddles, puzzles and run around the grounds of Circuit Park Makati in a digitized scavenger hunt.

Mobile challenges will be via the mobile app.

We also did our mini game with a 30 minutes time limit to test out how the adventure would go come go on race day.   I started to go with the object hunt finding different products, objects, animals around the Quorum Center in Pasig.  You can input your answer by taking photos of the object with the corresponding QR code.  The app would alert you if you got the correct answer.  I then went with a Toby’s challenge to shoot 3 out of 5 goals and I didn’t make it. What a time for my shooting to be off.  I then tried answering riddles which is mentally challenging but not physically exhausting.  I was able to get about 6 or 7 riddles.

Here’s a sample of the riddle.

The challenge can vary and test your different skills and physical prowess.  It can be a puzzle, a word hunt, a physical activity, trivia, a crossfit exercise or testing your motor skills or it can even be as simple as taking a selfie.

The participants and spectators can track their progress in real time as team scores will be available online throughout the day.  The leader board will be flashed regularly via a giant LED screen.  Teams may opt to join the “Fun,” “Competitive” and “Elite” categories.  The “Fun” category will be scored but not timed, while the “Competitive” and “Elite” teams will be given a limited time to complete as many challenges and accumulate as many points as possible.  The Berghaus Urban Adventure Race is organized by Cyburban, an innovator in app-based adventure racing, adding a new dimension to the traditional adventure racing format.
