Points & Scoring / How to Win

The race consists of challenge stations and puzzles, all worth points. All participants that obtain a perfect score - completing all challenges and answering all puzzles correctly - will be placed in a raffle for prizes to be announced in the race’s virtual Award Ceremony. If no one secures a perfect score, the grand prize will be awarded to the individual that scored the most points during the race. Any ties will be broken through raffle drawings amongst the tied individuals.

All activities are optional, and there is no penalty for not completing any of the race activities.

The answers for all puzzles will be announced shortly after the race ends, and teams will have a 24-hour window to contest any puzzle answers they submitted and believe could have alternate acceptable solutions. The decisions of the event management regarding acceptable puzzle solutions are final.
