The Scavenger Blitz turns exploring one's city into a fun, fast-paced race scattered with clues, obstacle courses, and riddles. Racers in teams of at least two scour the urban jungle in search of 12 clues, which can include challenges, riddles, or orders that need be completed before crossing the finish line. Some send racers hunting for a snapshot in front of a landmark, whereas others challenge them to complete some special feat, such as conquering an obstacle course on stilts.
Scavenger Adventure Races
Generally, adulthood forces people to give up childish pleasures, robbing them of the joy associated with playing in puddles, unearthing hidden treasure, and being silly in public. The folks at Sierra Adventure Sports wants grownups to regress, if only for a day. That's where Scavenger Adventure Races comes in. The Amazing Race-like event pits multiple teams against each other in puzzle-solving and physical challenge events throughout the city. Teams traverse 5–8 miles, utilizing public transportation and their own feet before they hit the finish line, crown the winners, and head to the after-party.
