HOW IT WORKS
The teams will be provided with an initial starting point and registration time. There will be two staggered starting times at five-minute intervals, two teams per interval. The team's starting time will be noted as the winner will be based on actual time plus penalties from their start to finish rather than who finishes first.
At the starting location, the teams will be given their first challenge. When the first challenge begins, the team's starting time will be recorded. Upon completion of the first challenge, the team will be given a checklist of the ten locations they must visit in order to complete the race. The team will then drive to the first location.
At each location, the team will need to complete that location's challenge. Once that challenge is complete, the location representative will initial the team's checklist and provide them with an envelope with puzzle pieces in it.
Once the team has successfully completed the challenges at all ten locations, the team will go to the finish line. Before a team can officially cross the finish line, the team will be provided a table on which they must complete a puzzle using all the puzzle pieces received throughout the race. Upon successful completion of the puzzle, the team's completion time will be noted to calculate their total race time.
The winner will be the team that completes the race in the least amount of time. Prizes will be awarded!
Teams must obey all applicable laws at all times. Traffic safety is an absolute must. Anyone caught violating a traffic law will be immediately disqualified.
When at challenge locations, teams must be respectful of the business and the people around them. There is no running at any location. Doors should be opened and closed with care. If the business has customers, teams must act in a professional manner so as not to disrupt normal business.
CDC COVID-19 guidelines must be followed. Whenever possible, a minimum of 6-feet distance must be maintained. Masks must be worn when physical distancing is not possible outdoors and at all times indoors unless at a table eating or drinking.
