Stride and Seek-04.png

Stride and Seek is a scavenger hunt run consisting of teams of 2.  Teams will be given a series of clues and challenges to earn points and return to Notch 8 by noon. This event is completed by running and/or walking.

You will use your street smarts, knowledge of Brainerd... and of course your phone to stride and seek your way to glory. 
This special edition of this event is to support our Water Tower in Brainerd.  We will be focusing on clues that are historical... as well as hysterical.  Get ready to have some FUN.


Register by September 15th to guarantee your requested shirt size.  

Can't participate but wish you could?

You can still register at a reduced price and receive the shirt and swag by mail. 

Once given your clues you can choose to strategize your route with your partner or take off and figure it out along the way.  You will not be able to complete all the tasks, so choose which you can complete and earn the points for.  Directions will be given for each task (think Amazing Race) .
*Hint Hint:  Details are important so be sure to read each clue carefully.


Individual:  $35
2 Person Team:  $70
