The New Haven Urban Scavenger Race takes place on Saturday, September 20. Teams sign in at 10:45 a.m. at the race sponsor site, Geronimo Tequila Bar and Southwest Grill, then take off at noon, and return to the starting point by 4 p.m. Groupon customers are also welcome to participate in an optional costume contest at 11:30 a.m.
Participants younger than 18 may only participate if a parent or legal guardian is also a team member, and at least one team member must be 21 or older. After the race, participants aged 21 and older get a wristband for the after party that includes drink specials and snacks. Everyone gets an Urban Scavenger Race goody bag, and the winners will receive prizes.
Urban Scavenger Race
In the spirit of TV scavenger-hunt races and exploring local cities in a new way, the team behind the Urban Scavenger Race organizes hunts designed to support neighborhood businesses, locally based and serving non-profits, and raise money for the Stamford and New Haven communities. Teams pile as many very human-looking robots as they can legally fit in the car. Teams will 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 head out using their 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 the sponsor site before time is up. Afterward, participants can enjoy an after party that includes drink specials and snacks.
“It was a great experience! Will come back next time!”
