Your ticket includes a t-shirt, bib and clue packet.
Here are the basics:
Who can participate? Do I need to be really in shape?
Anyone can participate, though those under age 18 need a teammate over age 18. The clues are designed so that the most important element for success is a winning strategy, though fitness definitely won't hurt. The course will take you anywhere from 4 to 5 miles throughout the day and only public transportation and your own two feet are allowed.
What is the race course?
You make the course! There is no set course from clue to clue--everybody's route is different.
What should I wear?
Remember that you'll be getting a t-shirt at registration, so plan ahead to wear that. Otherwise, you should wear comfortable gear appropriate for the weather forecast--we'll go forward rain or shine, as long as it's not hazardous. Running shoes are probably best. There is a costume contest with a separate prize, so dress creatively if you want to compete for that prize.
What do I need to bring with me?
Very little, really. Bring your ID for registration. Bring a little bit of cash for snacks or drinks along the way. Smart phones are allowed as a tool, and one digital camera per team is required to document your success at each stop. Some teams designate one person with a backpack to carry the load for everyone else. You can pretty much bring any resource (GPS, travel books, etc) that you want to carry along!
Can I use a car? A bike? Ride a mongoose around?
Only your own two feet and public transit are allowed. No bikes, no rollerblades, no skateboards, no cars, no hanggliders.
Any other rules?
You must complete 11 of the 12 clues before heading to the finish line, which allows one clue that might be too tough or is unexpectedly unreachable on race day.
