Bring the whole family on an urban adventure exploring the Center of the Universe. Run, walk, or skip (seriously, you decide) as you race around Fremont solo or in teams of 2-5 in search of marked checkpoints on a special map. It’s the perfect way to start Sunday morning at Fremont Oktoberfest!
WHAT IS IT?
Street Scramble is an urban adventure that’s fun for runners, walkers, friends, and families! Dozens of checkpoints are marked on a specially-prepared map and your goal is to score points by finding as many as you can within the time limit. Whether you sprint or stroll is up to you! You can participate solo or in teams of 2-5.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Checkpoints are worth the tens place of the checkpoint number. (For example, checkpoints #38 is worth 30 points.)
To prove that you visited a checkpoint, you’ll answer a multiple-choice question on an answer sheet. (No guessing. This isn’t a trivia contest and incorrect answers receive a point penalty!)
Do your best to return to the finish on-time and turn in your answer sheet, or risk losing 10 points per minute (or fraction of a minute) that you’re late! This makes for an exciting dash to the finish.
WHAT TO BRING AND WEAR:
Wear whatever feels appropriate for the weather and the exertion level you plan. Some participants adventure in their street clothes while others wear breathable running apparel. Whatever you choose to wear, comfortable footwear is essential if you are going out on foot.
EVERYONE SHOULD BRING THE FOLLOWING:
A watch, so you’ll know when to dash back to the finish
A pencil or other writing utensil to mark your answer sheet. Or use one of the golf pencils we have to loan you at the event.
