  • 11:00 AM
  • Abundance Co-op, 571 South Avenue, Rochester, NY


  • This is for participants doing the event on their own (no teammates).
  • This is for teams of 2, 3, or 4 individuals. (Children under 13 do not count towards total number of individuals -- for example, a team of 2 adults, 2 children 13-18, and 2 children under 13 would be allowed.)

Registration is closed

Event Location:

The starting location is Abundance Co-op, 571 South Avenue.

There will be a mass start (everyone starts at the same time) at 11:00 a.m. Maps will be handed out at 10:30, to give plenty of time to plan your strategy. (Absolutely no one is allowed to start before 11:00 though!) Registration / check-in will open at 10:00 am.

Question/answer sheets will be given out when you register, so you can spend a little time getting familiar with the types of questions being asked prior to getting the maps.

Time categories are 2 hours and 4 hours. Individuals and teams can choose to do the event on foot or on bikes.

Entry fees are $10 for individuals, and $20 for teams of 2-4 people. 

The map:

The map is oriented to true north, not magnetic north. Magnetic north is indicated on the map legend, although there should not be any need for precise compass bearings.

One side of the sheet will have the center area and the eastern side of the mapped area; the other side of the sheet will have the center area and the western side of the mapped area. Thus, there is overlap between the two sides, to minimize the need for flipping from side to side. Map bags of 9x12 will be supplied.


The object is to visit, in any order, as many as possible of the spots (checkpoints) indicated by red circles on the maps, and verify that you were there by answering a question whose answer is found at the spot.
