On September 18th, join us for a casual, open-to-all, social, semi-competitive treasure hunt, in and around Eagle Ranch taking about 90 minutes with 10 Pit Stops.
Teams of 2-6 people. Families (parents and kids) and costumes encouraged. Teams with any member under 13 must include an adult (18 or older).
Human-powered transport ONLY (not electric): bikes, scooters, skate boards or your feet!
1st, 2nd, 3rd and best team costume awards: Color Coffee gift cards, $100, $50, $25 and $25.
Branded buffs (neck gaiter – see it?!) will be provided for each team member and volunteer.
Entry Fee – $25 per team (non-refundable), payable to/at Color Coffee Roasters. Payment secures your place!
Course/Route/Pit Stops/Clues & Bonus Points
The course is approximately 6 miles around Eagle Ranch mostly on bike paths. With 5+ minutes at each Pit Stop it should take between 1 hour 15 minutes and 1 hour 45 minutes to complete (by bike).
Teams will solve Clues that lead to each of 10 Pit Stops where they will take and text a team photo to Amazing Race HQ, before solving the next Clue and moving to the next Pit Stop. Clues will be simple, poetic and engaging, but one or two will be more cryptic.
Points will be awarded for each Challenge completed, for finishing under 90 minutes and for creativity (in the photos taken.) Teams with young team members (under 8) will start with bonus points (we don’t want you to be at a disadvantage!) Teams with one or more runners will start with 20 bonus points.
The course will stay within the boundaries of this map, so there’s no need to stray too far!
Final Team Instructions
Bring your own water; there will be no aid stations on the course.
At least 30 minutes before your start time, come to the side entrance of Endorphin to sign in, collect your buffs and final instructions.
Do not follow the team in front of you! Teams will alternate following the course in clockwise and counter-clockwise directions.
Teams will receive their Amazing Race Envelope at their start time leaving at 2-minute intervals.
Teams with a member under 8 years of age will start with 10 bonus points.
At each of the 10 Pit Stops, take and text a team photo to ‘Race HQ’ (970-948-5950) to earn 5 points (50 total).
You can miss a pit stop (if it’s taking too long), but you will lose those 5 points. Text HQ if you get lost!
Bonus points will be awarded for amazingly creative photos (at the judges’ discretion!)
One bonus point will be awarded for each minute you complete the course under 90 minutes.
Teams must stay together with all members present, visiting each Pit Stop as a group.
When you finish be sure to bring your envelope to us at HQ to record your time.
Starting at 2pm, teams will leave every two minutes.
