    During the challenge, teams of two or more individuals will run helter-skelter around the city in a vibrant race for cash prizes and personal pride, with a first place award of $750. Not only will participants have to solve strands of interconnected clues that would test the deductive powers of even the most seasoned consulting detective, they'll need to plot spatiotemporal stratagems while exploring undiscovered corners of the city. Although being physically fit is a plus, it's quick wits and wise planning that will ultimately determine the winners. Participation in the challenge gets contestants a clue packet, race-number bib, and a free T-shirt, as well as helps with contributions to partner charities and the prize pool. The website offers a FAQ page with further details on the intricacies of the race, what to wear the day of, why it's not okay to bring your pet boa constrictor, and more.
