On April 24, the Great Richmond Region Adventure is set to test the endurance, the creativity and the collective knowledge of several hundred people working in teams of up to six people as they compete to prove they know Richmond inside and out. The boots-on-the-ground exploration of Richmond combines the physical endurance of the Amazing Race with the puzzle-solving complexity of The Da Vinci Code. In addition to cash prizes, an additional $1,700 is donated in the winning team's name to a local non-profit museum or attraction. Here are a few more details from the sponsoring organization (and Floricane client), the Richmond Metropolitan Convention and Visitors Bureau:
The Great Richmond Region Adventure is the ultimate test of physical speed, mental agility and Richmond Region knowledge. Equipped with adventure maps & clues, your team of up to six race to crack complex codes and decipher puzzles, each revealing new clues as your team continues its quest to win the ultimate glory and the $1,700 cash prize.
Logistical information, including the secret start location, will be sent to teams via email starting April 12. When you register, be sure to provide an email address to which you have access 24/7. It is best not to use a work email address.
For the more laid-back, this year the event also includes the Great Richmond Riddle Adventure, a family and stroller friendly version of the more competitive race. Head over to the Great Richmond Region Adventure website for details on both events and related activities happening on April 24.
