FAQ

As much as we understand “things” happen, penalties will be given…Please bring your team spirit along, start as a team and finish as a team!

Teams of TWO TO FOUR will explore the city to find Toronto’s hidden treasures. Teamwork and friendships will be tested as you search through clues and hints revealing the richness of the city’s multicultural diversity. Through this unique expedition, you and your team will get a chance to connect with and experience the different cultures of our fellow Torontonians. You will be challenged to expand their comfort zones as you decipher the many mysteries of our community. Winning teams will go home with trophies, medals, and great prizes.

City Mosaic is a race that emphasizes on teamwork. That is why we require all teams to register in team and play as team, with minimum of 2 members, maximum of 4. We encourage you to find friends, family or classmates to form a team of 4 for a day of fun!

TTC passes, event t-shirt, program guide, and light refreshment are included.

Your full team is determined by the total number of people you registered for City Mosaic. If you’re a man/woman short…well, you will have to do your best! However, a minimum of 2 members is required for the event, teams with only 1 member showing up will be disqualified.

If you have any new member(s) or replacement, please give us a call, email, and/or let us know by May 22, 2019.

It’s completely up to you on how you want to explore the city! It is not mandatory to visit all checkpoints, but the more checkpoints you visit the more points you can earn. Just make sure you return to the finishing line before time runs out!

NO, because rules are rules!

Just to be clear, other than walking, running, or travelling on the TTC, you MAY NOT use any of the following or similar methods of transportation:
– Taxi
– Cars, motorcycle, trucks
– Bikes, Skateboard, rollerblades, scooters (or the electric ones)
– Uber
– Hover boards

In short, travel ON FOOT or by TTC…

We will provide TTC day pass(s) for all teams. It is up to you on how you want to use it, but we won’t be providing any extra if you lose it.

Everyone loves convenience, but to ensure all participants to have a fair race, we ask that everyone to gather at Mel Lastman Square.

Pace yourself for food and stay hydrated. You also won’t want to miss out the good food around Toronto…AND, “phone eats first”, share the goodies with your foodies on Instagram!

Your pet would be much safer at home than running around with you for a full day. Please keep your pet at home.
