In lieu of our traditional Mile Fun Run, we have created a family friendly, adventurous, outdoor scavenger hunt for our younger athletes. Each participant will receive a set of clues to ONE of the FOUR courses spread throughout Walpole’s Town Forest. Each course leads the participant to a hidden treasure box with a unique item found in each. This challenge can be completed anytime between August 29 and September 7.
The registration fee for the Family Fun Scavenger Hunt is $15 per participant. Those who register by August 14th will receive a free Road Race T-Shirt along with their Scavenger Kit. Participants who register after August 28th will receive their adventure package by Labor Day Weekend.
