The cryptids are out there. Are you chasing them?
Learn how to run with the most mysterious species on the planet: bounce like springboras, slalom like whip zananas, crouch-run like ninja rabbits, spin like swingdogs, jump like tiptrees, and swing like the summit monkeys.
Join a pack of fellow cryptid chasers, and follow a set of strange animal tracks on a 1 mile whirlwind tour of the city streets.
Then, meet up with other packs and challenge each other to out-chase the cryptids. Pick your favorite running styles, and design your own fast and furious one-block races.
Anyone can run with the cryptids. You don't have to be athletic, or coordinated. But you do need to be adventurous... and willing to sweat. Because you're about to move faster -- and weirder -- than you thought possible. Once you've caught sight of the cryptids, you won't be able to help yourself. There's just something about those mysterious cryptids... they unlock the creature in all of us.
Bring water. Wear snakers. Be ready to move... fast, and strange.
BONUS ADVENTURE: We'll get real-time cryptid alerts from the MTV screen in Times Square!
