The New Haven Urban Scavenger Race takes place on Saturday, October 13; teams of two to four people must sign in at race sponsor Black Bear Saloon between 11:30 a.m. and 11:45 a.m. Racers take off from Black Bear at noon and must return there by 4 p.m. Participants younger than 18 may only participate if a parent or legal guardian is also a team member. If there is inclement weather, the race will be rescheduled for Saturday, October 20. Teams can don eccentric costumes for a chance to win 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 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.
