More Information



Participants may can begin their race any time between 5pm and 9pm.

The route for the scavenger hunt is 2.5 miles and some public transportation is available on the way.

Families can chose a hunt designed specifically with children in mind that includes alien themed activities involving chalk drawing and spaceships. For the young professional set, photo opportunities and social media sharing will be the focus of the hunt, with planned bar stops and happy hour drink specials offered along the route. Roving Corcoran “aliens” will be stationed through the route to assist in collaborative projects and provide inspiration for fun photo shoots.

The young professional scavenger hunt features several optional bar stops (food and drink will be available for purchase there); participants must be 21 or over to participate in these activities. 

Grab a partner or form a team (each individual must register separately; children under 12 are free with the purchase of an adult ticket.) Participants do not need to go as a team. Price of ticket includes admission to the Corcoran before/after the race. 

About the Ticket Supplier: Corcoran Gallery of Art and College of Art + Design

In the words of its founder, the Corcoran is “dedicated to art.” Its museum presents, interprets and preserves the art of our times and of times past; its college of art nurtures and helps shape new generations of artists and designers. Education is a central focus, not just in the Corcoran’s classrooms but in its galleries and throughout the greater Washington region. Though American art is the collection’s emphasis, the art of other nations and cultures is, when appropriate, acquired and exhibited.

The Corcoran is committed to making the historic art in its collections and the emerging art of our time accessible and understandable to the broadest possible audience through innovative exhibitions and educational programming, systematic research and rigorous scholarship. Its many activities emphasize the combined resources of its museum and college, and are directed toward diverse communities with widely differing educational and socio-economic backgrounds. Though proud of its important place in the international world of art history and scholarship, the Corcoran is ever mindful of its special obligation to serve the greater Washington region, especially its artists and its young people.
