THE Merdeka Cycle N Hunt is an event that has become a signature outdoor recreational activity for the government administrative hub.
The two-and-a-half-hour race will begin at Taman Botani Putrajaya in Precint 1 and take participants through allocated checkpoints at the Lake Recreation Centre and the main park at Taman Wetland Putrajaya in Precinct 13 and Taman Warisan Putrajaya in Precinct 16 before reaching the final stop at Dataran Putra in Precinct 1.
Participants will have to overcome obstacles that will be set up at each of the locations they have to visit before picking up clues and being tested on their general knowledge of Putrajaya, the nation and National Day.
The hunt offers two categories, with the schools' category for children age between 13 and 17 and the open category for anyone above 18.
Each team is allowed to have between two and four participants and fees are RM25 for the schools' category and RM50 for the open category.
Entries will close on Aug 25 and participation will be limited to 40 teams in each category.
