Where do we meet?

Check the specifics of each race

 

Can I participate with a group?

Absolutely. Teams can be anywhere from 2 – 4 members.  You can have larger groups but you have to be aware that there are only 4 prizes for the winning team.  If you are ok with that, then we are ok with a bigger team.

 

Can I participate as an individual?

Yes! You can sign up as an individual but you can not participate as an individual.  We will pair you up with a team to make a group after registration closes.

 

Do I have to be 21 years old?

Most of our hunts are open to anyone!  We do usually start and end at a bar but the bar serves food so people under 21 are allowed inside.  The only time this does not apply is if we are doing a bar crawl type of event like our St. Patty’s Day Hunt and Mardi Gras hunt.

I’m out of shape. Can I do this?

Of course! Go at your own pace – however if you finish first, you win a prize!

 

Do I have to know my city like a tour guide?

No. Think on your feet and you will have a shot to win.

 

What’s the course? Where do we go?

There’s no set course. Find your own way. It’s a ‘choose your own adventure’ race. You will end up all around the city.

 

Will I have to eat things?

Not as part of the race (unless, of course, it is a food one!). But, we always end at a place where you can buy food if you are hungry at the end.

 

How long is the hunt?

Public hunts are about 3 hours long. Private hunts can be customized.

 

What if I can’t find something?

Don’t give up! Keep looking, ask for help, go to bookstores or internet cafes. For a time penalty, you can even call us!

 

Can my cousin / co-worker / grandma be on my team?

Anyone can be on your team.
