The Stamford Urban Scavenger Race takes place on Saturday, October 5. Teams of two to four people sign in at the race sponsor Hotel 0 Degrees at 10:15 a.m., and can also compete in the family-friendly costume contest. Teams then take off at 11 a.m. and return to the hotel by 3 p.m. Participants younger than 18 may only participate if a parent or legal guardian is also a team member. After the race, participants aged 21 and older get a wristband for the afterparty that includes drink specials and snacks, and everyone gets an Urban Scavenger Race T-shirt, and the winners will receive prizes.
Stamford Urban Scavenger Race
In the spirit of TV scavenger-hunt races and exploring local cities in a new way, the team behind Stamford Urban Scavenger Race organizes hunts designed to support neighborhood businesses and raise money for the Stamford and New Haven communities. Before each four-hour race, teams of two to four people or very human-looking robots arrive early to sign in and show off their family-friendly costumes to judges, who will select a winning getup. Upon receiving a clue sheet, teams venture into the city, using only public transportation, smartphones, and the kindness of strangers to track down the locations hinted at in the clues. Teams have to acquire a stamp or take a group photo at each destination, making sure to return to Hotel 0 Degrees before time is up. Afterward, participants aged 21 and older get a wristband for an after party that includes drink specials and snacks.
