The challenge is open for teams of maximum 5 people to take part and compete against other teams in a thrilling 40-minute race which is divided into five 8-minute slots for team members to pedal as fast as they possibly can with the support of their team members.

– Session 1: 11am – 12 noon
– Session 2: 12 noon – 1pm

Treasure Hunt 2024

Looking for an off-the-shelf team activity that will excite everyone involved?

The City Giving Day Treasure Hunt is the perfect way to support The Lord Mayor’s Appeal, build morale and have fun at the same time. All you need to do is arrive at Mansion House for 4pm, where you and your team will be given a clue. Crack it together to find the next prize and finally the treasure. The hunt should take you no longer than 45 mins

The first team back is the winner. No special gear or clothing is necessary – you’ll all receive a City Giving Day Treasure Hunt t-shirt, you won’t have to walk any further than half a mile and you are bound to learn something new about the City along the way.

If you haven’t got a full team together then it could be the perfect opportunity to meet someone new. Just enter yourself and we will create a team so that you can take part with some new faces.

Registration for the Treasure Hunt is £10 per person or £50 for a team of up to 6 people.

City Walk 2024

What could be better than a nice gentle stroll around the City during your lunchtime?

Lasting about an hour, one of the City of London Guides will take you through some of the byways of the City telling tales and pointing out myriad points of interest – you’ll be amazed by what you learn. So, whether you want to learn something new about the City or just get outside for a breath of fresh air at lunchtime – this will be the activity for you.

– Session 2: 12:30pm – 1:30pm
