We get asked all the time, " What is a CityScape Scavenger Race?" Well that's a tough question because it is truly what you want it to be. Whether you are competing for top cash prizes, looking for a day with family and friends or turning into a pub crawl with your buddies this race is for you. Over the last five years we have seen a ton of dos and don’ts. Here are some of the best to help you have the best day ever!
Tip #1: Wear the right clothes. This is an interesting one. We know that everyone wants to look cool and stylish but boots and jeans are probably not the best choice for this event. Whether you run or walk the scavenger hunt, you will be moving and chaffing is no fun.
Tip #2: Bring a smartphone. If you know your city well you have an advantage but not much. Anyone can complete a scavenger race anywhere with the use of your smartphone. Using your internet browser to search clues, and your map application to plot your course will greatly increase your chances of success. CHARGE YOUR PHONE!!
Tip #3: Pop Culture. Are you up to date with what's going on? Stay connected as there may be challenges related to these topics.
Tip #4: Life line. Have a friend that didn't want to join? See if they will act as your lifeline. Someone at home with a computer that can do some of the research for you. This can shave seconds and miles off of your race.
Tip #5: Bring water. Because this race is not defined by the route you take it is very difficult to add water stations. Make sure to bring water to stay hydrated along the way. The best we think is a hydration pack. Pack some snacks and energy bars along with your water and you'll be all set.
Most importantly have FUN!! This is an opportunity to have fun, get creative, be silly and get some exercise in at the same time.
We hope to see you at the next CityScape Scavenger Race near you!
