Thanks to a reader for giving me the heads up about tons of folks running around the U St. area with numbers on their backs. I couldn’t get any teams to stop for very long but I caught the two photographed above at a stop light. They told me it was a High Trek Adventure race. Man, I wish I knew about this earlier, it sounds awesome. From the High Trek Web site:
“You and your team partner will be on a lively, one-day, DC amazing race. This scavenger hunt will take you to unmarked checkpoints known as TREKpoints and explore Washington,DC like you’ve never experienced it before as the puzzle unfolds. Our high octane energy adventure game might take you through the many historical neighborhoods of our nation’s capitol like Foggy Bottom, Adams Morgan, Georgetown, Capitol Hill, Dupont Circle, the Washington Mall and some nifty places you might not even know about!
On this sensational metro adventure, you’ll solve clues ranging from pop culture to math (nothing tougher than 8th grade) to American history, anagrams, sudoku, and so much more. It’s like a real life Trivial Pursuit game!”
Can’t believe I missed this. Did anyone participate?
For those that missed it, fear not. A reader and I are organizing a PoP scavenger hunt for the second Saturday in October. Stay tuned for details.
