Registration starts at 9 a.m. and the hunt begins at 10 a.m. Each participant will receive a map and a list of challenges on the day of the race. There is no set route or order in which challenges must be completed. Prizes will be awarded to first place and runner up. A donation of $10 includes an official FPAN reusable aluminum water bottle.
