The Great Race has been run as a quest in two different ways:

Version 1 - 2003: The Great Race was a challenge of mud knowledge, ability to traverse the realm, and a race against the clock, all combined. Only one racer per following was allowed, and only one person could race at a time. They could receive no information specific assistance whatsoever: only helpful spells were allowed. Individuals started at the Room of Records. There, they were given a riddle to solve, that would designate a specific item and a specific mob. They had to obtain the item and give it to the correct mob, to receive the next riddle pair. There were a total of 18 pairs of mobs and items, ranging all over the world. Tyrn, Fobro, Grale and Mordith were unable to complete even the first round. Mandrake and Wylin completed 5 rounds each. The overall winner was Whoz, the only one to be able to complete the entire course of 18 items and mobs, completing it in 4 hours.

Version 2 - 2011: A race of all-out speed, fighting the clock. A mad dash from the Throne Room of King Zentarion & Queen Sylette in Dwarvenhold, to the Coach House in Riverdale Plantation.
