Designed by FCPS Young Scholars and the Office of Advanced Academics, each participant and team will need to solve multiple clues, complete challenges, and work together as they traverse Downtown Frederick and unravel secrets of the city.
Competitors must take a photo of all of your team members at each stop. Only your two feet are allowed - no Uber, cars, bikes, rollerskates, unicycles, camels, helicopters or hoverboards are allowed. All competitors and teams must be present at the finish line to record a time. Participants are allowed to only use smart phones, their brains, and the kindness of strangers.
Early Advance Entry (valid through April 15, 2017) : $ 20 for individual; $ 70 for a team of four (no age restrictions).
Entry Fee after April 15th - $ 27.50 for individuals; $ 85 for a team of four (no age restrictions).
All participants will receive a Great Frederick Discovery Race commemorative ball cap.
Estimated time to complete the clues and navigate your route is approx. 75-90 minutes.
Downtown Frederick Partnership gift certificates will be awarded to the Top Three Individuals and Teams who follow all rules, solve all clues, and finish the fastest.
Enter the Costume Contest - all contestants are encouraged to create and wear a costume that best represents your attitude and personality! Top Three costumes will be awarded prizes as well by our panel of judges.
