$60 for a Two-Person Team Registration for TeamQuest Urban Race for Hope (Up to $120 Value)
The endurance scavenger hunt takes its cues from CBS’s The Amazing Race, challenging teams of two to locate and solve 12 clues hidden within an 8K radius as well as complete checkpoint challenges. Duos, who are encouraged to dress in costumes, travel by foot, train, or bus to crack the clues in any order they choose. Check-in begins at 8 a.m. on September 28, 2012 at Katy Trail Ice House in Oak Lawn, and the race starts at 9 a.m. First-, second-, and third-place winners—as well as one winner for Best Costume—will be awarded $100–$300 in cash or gift certificates.
TeamQuest Urban Race for Hope
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.
