Welcome to a special season 5 of the Geo Run! This year we will be changing things up a bit. Due to time constraints we were unable to create a full blown Geo Run as we have in the past, but instead of eliminating it entirely we have decided to scale it down to something that we hope will be fun all the same.
On Saturday April 29th meet up at the posted coordinates and get ready to have some fun! The log sheet will be available from 11:30 to 11:55 at which time instructions will be given and you will be released at 12:00pm
Your job will be to solve the clues to find the hidden coordinates and meet up with us at the finish line. The individual or team to find us at the hidden location will win. Fear not, if you are unable to find the final location by the ending time of 1:30 pm we will provide some assistance.
The Cedar Rapids Geo Run is a fast paced puzzle where your job is to explore the Cedar Rapids city which holds the pieces to this adventurous puzzle. The more you know about the city the better off you will do. Do you have to know the city like a tour guide? Nope! Think on your feet, be ready for anything and you'll have a shot to win.
Individuals or teams solve clues and race to the finish line for prizes in this all out test of smarts and speed.
Great efforts have been put in place to not award, or penalize, those that will be participating alone or in a group.
Expectations: - You will be driving around town, we strongly suggest you obey all traffic laws.
- You may be interacting with the general public (muggles), be nice and they will be nice back to you.
- You will be timed so be conscious to this fact.
- Everyone is a winner but not everyone will go home with a prize so be prepared to compete.
- This event will be held rain or shine so prepare for the elements of the day.
I'm out of shape, can I do this? Yes, you can go at your own pace and should be able to compete on this course. Remember it may not be the most physical person or team that does well in this race but the smartest ones can come home with a prize.
This year we are at Green Square Park. Note, it is free parking over the weekend, you do not need to feed the parking meters.
