A cross between Superstars and It's a Knockout, Computastars is a challenging, fun team event that can be enjoyed by anyone in IT, regardless of skill, age or gender.
The events vary from year to year, but in previous years they have included a basketball relay, eight-legged race, weightlifting, human wheelbarrow race and the notorious steeplechase.
The only criteria for entrants is that they must work in IT, either in an IT department or for an IT company. Some people take part every year and train to prepare themselves. Others, like the team of Computer Weekly journalists that will be taking part this year, just hope they will be able to survive the day.
The event, which takes place at the end of July, is a fun day out. For information and entry details e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, putting "Computastars" in the subject box, or phone 020-8656 6010.
