The event is a fun, interactive, EXTREME scavenger hunt appropriate for all ages and abilities. It will take place in the public spaces and businesses in and around the Village Green campus in Fairfield. Participants will register on-line… just like a 5K, but that is where the similarity ends. Teams of 2-5 will complete as many scavenger hunt challenges in two hours as they can to earn points and win prizes! Prizes will also be awarded for team spirit, so costumes and craziness are encouraged! Challenges may include:
· Collecting Random Items like free items from local businesses
· Performing Tasks like doing part of a community art project or carrying someone’s groceries
· Snapping Photos with strangers like a local town official, or making a video of your entire team doing something unusual
· Discovering facts about a business or your community’s Past and Present
This event is open to anyone of any age and will be an exciting way for businesses to build teamwork, families to work together, and young people to have a blast! It will involve alot of walking so wear comfortable shoes and dress for the weather.
Bring your cell phone with plenty of memory space and fully charged!
Parking: Please look for event parking signs in and around Village Green. The race is on foot.
