Pirates, ballerinas, and characters straight out of the 1980s flood the streets of Dallas each and every fall, racing their way through TeamQuest Urban Race for Hope, all in support of Mary Crowley Cancer Research Centers. Teams of two clad in matching costumes or plain clothes gather clues and complete challenges throughout an 8K radius. Racers can take the course by foot or hop aboard buses, trains, and pedi-cabs–but not taxis–throughout the race and are free to use smartphones to call old cartography teachers for help. The first clue envelope is passed out promptly at 9 a.m., and the hunt concludes by 1 p.m., just in time to reward first-, second-, and third-place winners with cash or gift certificates. One hundred percent of the proceeds raised through registration fees are donated to Mary Crowley Cancer Research Centers.
