Last year, as part of ROC Transit Day , we planned a city-wide treasure hunt where teams followed a series of clues (for over 19 miles) to be the first to find a $500 cash prize at the end. The only catch: No motor vehicles. All teams were required to use public transit, walk, or bike. (it’s in the rules!)
This year (Thursday, June 18) we’re doing it again. It’s completely free to enter, but you must pre-register here before June 17. Right now we only have 6 teams signed up, so your odds would be pretty good; as long as you have a good working knowledge of Rochester.
Still not sure if you’ve got the right stuff? Take a look at the clues from LAST year and see how well you’d fare…
CLUE #7: Check-in at the top of the HILL… you’ll be asked to run one lap around to RESERVe yOIR next clue.
CLUE #9: Thanks for visiting the Rochester subway. But your destination is directly ABOVE YOU.
Last year’s winning time was 5 hours 45 minutes, 19.25 miles.
Only difference this year will of course be the clues. $500 1st prize and $200 2nd prize must be split with a charity of your choice. 3rd prize is a pack of tickets to a Rochester Rhinos 2015 home game.
So get your team together. Register and get your first clue here before June 17! The event is next Thursday!
