City breaks: check.
Urban adventure racing in Europe: check.
This year, we’re spicing things up. Would you follow us blindly?
We’re taking you to a Mysterious destination.
Saturday October 6th, 2018.
We could say without a doubt this adventure will be a first. There’s a really famous show in France where an enchanting adventurer, Fred, takes a celebrity to a secret area of the world where they will be living for a week with an ethnicity. Of course, we’re huge fans of the show. But we doubt Fred would be able to handle 550 Popins in a mysterious destination, hehe!
So here’s the challenge: you will register for this Pop In the City without knowing where you’re going.
The rest remains the same: a European city (a sunny one), an 8-hour urban adventure race made of challenges and 550 Popins. Reaaaady ?
AND THE MYSTERIOUS DESTINATION IS…… *drum roll*
