It was the race that stopped the town.
It was for the youth anyway.
The Great Goulburn Race saw 16 teams of two, aged between 12 and 24, do an Amazing Race sort of course around town.
They were given worksheets and activities to complete in the time frame of two hours.
Goulburn Mulwaree Council mayor Bob Kirk was at the finish line at the Civic Centre meet and greet the youngsters and said he hoped they learned a lot from the experience.
He also encouraged them to be a part of the youth council.
"The Goulburn Mulwaree Youth Council meets on the last Friday of every month," Cr Kirk said.
"It gives you a chance to put forward ideas for the future which could benefit the youth in our community.
At the start of the race, teams had to answer questions about Belmore Park and historical buildings across the CBD by searching around for clues.
Then they had to make their way to places like the Japanese Garden in Victoria Park and have their names written in Japanese, the community gardens and Headspace.
Teams were supposed to have a short personal training session with the Royal Military College Duntroon cadets at Manfred Park, but no one turned up.
The contestants had to be polite and respectful, obey police, traffic and council regulation and complete the race on foot.
Youth Week continues next week as council's youth services coordinator Luke Wallace will be at Goulburn High School and Mulwaree High School on Wednesday and Thursday respectively.
