Event Details

We are back baby! This time around it's going to be bigger and awesomer! 


Amazing Austin RACE

Participate in this unique hybrid urban adventure!

If you love Austin you have to participate in this race because it’s not just a race, it is a scavenger hunt where you use your gray cells to solve puzzles to the next location, spot objects and people, it involves a little bit of dashing and maybe some dancing. It has geocaching to find your next clues and you also get to chill in the Town Lake for a bit! You get lots of photo opportunities and meet awesome people like yourself! Imagine all cool, out of the ordinary Saturdays you’ve spent with your buddies, this is all of that in one place in 5 hours.

You can finish this race in 2-4 hours, the winning team is decided based on time + tasks completed +  bonus points earned along the way!


Who can participate?

Atleast one team member should be 18 or above.

You have to be over 21 years of age to attend the after party.

You don’t have to be a runner or a Sunday puzzle solver. This race is designed to entertain everyone!


What is Amazing Austin Race?

A hybrid of scavenger hunt and geocaching!

Get your weekly dose of adrenaline exploring Austin with your friends, clicking silly pictures on the way and burning lots of calories :) and then finish the race drinking at the awesome after party!!!

The winning team gets $150 (or gift cards worth the same amount)

The runners up get $100 (or gift cards worth the same amount

Bonus:

By participating, you will be contributing to AID (Association of India's Development) a volunteer movement which supports grass roots organization in India and initiates efforts in various interconnected spheres such as agriculture, energy, education, health, women's empowerment and social justice.

 Here are some of the projects supported by the Austin chapter of AID:

What a better way to spend a weekend than have some fun in the fresh air and make a positive impact!


 The organizer?

I am a computer geek/ hiker/ painter/ live music lover... (sounds like anyone you know in Austin yet?) and I'm raising funds for AID Austin.

I love the Amazing Race and so instead of organizing a usual 5K race or social event to raise funds for the charity AID, I decided to make it more fun and inclusive! Just like this city.

I really appreciate your participation as all earnings from this event go to the charity!

You can read more about the charity here:

FAQs

 

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

Yes, if you are unable to make it, you can transfer the ticket by editing your order. It can be transfered at any time.

 

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

A printed ticket or the pdf in your phone is acceptable

 

What is the refund policy?

The tickets are non refundable as marketing a small scale event such as this takes a lot of time and I won't be able to replace participants in the days leading up to the event.

But, you can transfer your ticket to anyone at anytime and in the worst case scenario, you can redeem your unused ticket for a beer :D
