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.
