basically, it's a scavenger hunt for charity. this race's particular charity was It's All About The Kids Foundation, which "creates new and innovative programs to benefit children's charities and enhance the lives of less fortunate children and their families."
one of my teammates posted a great blog breaking out each clue and full of fun pics from the day. you can check it out here. the site hasn't released the official results yet but we came in around 4 hours. what i was proudest about was that we actually finished the race. many teams gave up early on by deciding not to solve and find all the required clues. all in all, i think we did pretty well for our first shot at it and we all agreed that it is something we'll definitely try again (on a cooler day for sure).
