Finding your way to the checkpoints is the overriding challenge, and figuring out the most efficient route is the key to solving the puzzles within the two-hour time limit and racking up the most points without incurring any time penalties.
Canby is the perfect sized town for an event like this: Large enough to get in a three to six mile run as you move from checkpoint to checkpoint, but with little traffic and an open, relaxed vibe. The local businesses that take part in the event and host many of the checkpoints add to the low-key and friendly atmosphere.
Since there is no set course, and the locations of the checkpoints are for you to discover, there will be no aid stations. So remember to bring your own water and other supplies.
Fun is the keyword for the Get A Clue Scavenger Race, and you’re almost guaranteed to have a smile on your face for most of the day. The top three teams will receive medals, and be sure to stick around for the great raffle drawing with many high quality prizes.
