Event Description

Ever Played Murder Mystery Dinner?

Well, we are taking it up a notch! We are taking the mystery, out to the the streets so you can have a real life experience for solving a case. 

This is not an ordinary everyday 5K run. This is a walk/run/scavenger/mystery solving type of race.
Murder Mystery Race is like scavenger hunt type of race. You will need to solve a murder mystery in a chosen city within the 3-4mile radius. We will first meet you and your team at the given time and location. At the place of the event, the teams will be assigned an unsolved mystery and clues to solve; the teams will now scatter 3-4 miles throughout the city to solve the mystery. There will be check-in places where the team will be required to take pictures and/or solve riddles to gain a clue. Images and answered riddles will be needed to finish the race.
You will need a group of 2-4 members. 

Event details and schedule

Get ready for the best Mystery challenge you ever took. We will begin check-in at 12:00 pm and will be taking registration up to the start of the race. You should bring a cell phone and a digital camera to show your pictures at the end of the race. A smartphone is ideal. Maps are also handy; I also recommend a pen or pencil to take notes and water to drink. Dress comfortably.
We begin by assigning you to an unsolved mystery and hand out a set of clues. You can use your smart phones and smart friends as much as you want for help on clues. For the checkpoints that mention a riddle, you must check in with the Murder Mystery official, answer the riddle, and get your picture taken before moving on. On all checkpoints and dares, you must get a picture with both team members to show you were both there. This is a team race. You must be together throughout the race. You may walk, run or use public transportation to get to your destination. We expect the winners will finish the race in about 2 hours and most of you will finish under 4 hours.
