Yikes! The last time I ran was during the Presidential Fitness Challenge in 10th grade. Will I be able to keep up?

 

You don’t have to be in the best shape to participate; Race & Seek is as much about MIND as it  is about MIGHT.

So if you’re in shape or not quite  in shape, it is anyone's race.

I just moved here and I still get lost just going to the mailbox to get my mail. How can I navigate my way around the city?

 

Just like you normally do when you’re going to a new address: smartphone apps, GPS, old school maps, public transportation routes, or simply asking a stranger for directions. Knowing your city or the city that you’re racing in has its advantages, but it is not necessary to win the race.

 

 

How can I get around during the race?

 

You may get around the city using public transportation (buses or subway trains). No cars, bikes, skates, or skateboards, Segway, etc…

 

 

How do I collect proof of completing each task?

Technology is definitely allowed and usage is encouraged. So bring your smart phones, tablets, gps, digital cameras, and extra chargers, because utilizing technology may be the difference in winning the race and having bragging rights for your city!
