About

On Saturday, July 14, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., the classic board game Clue springs to life throughout the city of Denver during the Mile High Murder Mystery Race. Dozens of teams, each with two–six people, race around the city to sleuth out the who, why, where, and when of the dastardly deed—and, of course, recover the weapon, be it candlestick, pistol, or expired jar of mayonnaise. Teams uncover clues that lead them to each destination. In scavenger-hunt style, they find items along the way that ultimately help them solve the whole whodunit.

The day starts at 8 a.m. at Stoney's Bar and Grill, where racers can revel as they await the start of the race, comparing team names such as "Mystery Machine" and "CSI Vegas" or slipping on the final elements of their costumes. Teams must be there by 10 a.m. for registration and race announcements, and the caper officially begins at 11 a.m. After the race, hardworking detectives will be duly rewarded—there are cash prizes of $300, $150, and $75 for first, second, and third places, respectively, as well as awards in categories such as best team name, best tweet of the day, and best costume.

Though the race gives participants the chance to play hero for the day, 10% of the proceeds will fund the actually heroic mission of Cops Fighting Cancer: to support Colorado cancer patients and their families both financially and emotionally.
