The 5pm Post – Hill and Go Seek Scavanger Bike Race Aug. 28th

From an email:

“The basic gist is that it’s like Amazing Race on bikes, all over the Hill – starting at the North Eastern Market Metro Plaza and winding up at a cool party at the H Street Country Club. The fun gets started at 5pm on August 28.

This is a cool event for a great cause – the Ready, Willing and Working program – hope to see you there!”

Full press release after the jump.

Whether you are a bicycle enthusiast or just like a good competition, Hill and Go
Seek is for you. For a $20 entry fee, teams of two are invited to participate in this scavenger hunt
style bicycle race for the thrill of victory and some amazing prizes.

Hill and Go Seek will put the riders to the test – creatively and physically. Starting at 5 pm, teams will be
given a list of ten points of interest throughout Capitol Hill. From Barracks Row to RFK Stadium, Eastern
Market to the H Street Corridor – it is up to the riders to choose the best route between stops.

Points will be awarded for: completion speed; checkpoints completed; tasks completed; as well as other
point-earning categories like creativity and participation using correct safety gear. Winners will be
determined by greatest number of overall points, and will be announced at an after party hosted by the H
Street Country Club.

Pre-registration is highly recommended and available online at or at
Capitol Hill Bikes (cash or check only) located at 719 8th Street SE.

Hill and Go Seek is produced by the Capitol Hill Business Improvement District and CHAMPS – Capitol
Hill’s Chamber of Commerce, and sponsored by Capitol Hill Bikes, The Office of Tommy Wells, DDOT’s
Capital Bikeshare and the Washington Area Bicycle Association (WABA).

Proceeds from Hill and Go Seek will benefit Ready, Willing & Working a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization
that empowers men to break the cycles of homelessness, welfare dependency and criminal recidivism
through a residential, paid-work rehabilitation program offering holistic programs and supportive services
that allow individuals to achieve permanent self-sufficiency.
