Family Fun Scavenger Hunt

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.
Important Note: The challenge is open to all members of the registered participants family, but the prizes and T-Shirt are limited to the registered participant only.

Come join us, it's a wonderful way to get to know our local treasure of the Walpole Town Forest while supporting the WHS XC/Track & Field Program.

Along the trails, we have placed a treasure chest (small grey container with some small toys) for the participants.

We have set up two courses for the hunt

The course starts at the Walpole High School at 275 Common Street, Walpole MA.
 Course 2 (EAST Course) is 2.0 miles long and targeted for 7 - 12 year olds.  
This course starts at Jarvis Farm at 691 Common Street, Walpole MA.

 With your registration packet, you will receive a map of the course, a map of the town forest, and scavenger hunt list.  The map you receive will be based on your child’s age.  If you would like to try both courses, electronic versions of all the materials are available, check your adventure pack for details.

 We have placed some laminated signs with some interesting facts and to help guide you on the courses.  Please remember that the courses are in the Walpole Town Forest, please bring Bug Spray, Water, and perhaps some snacks!
