Event Details

What is The Astound High Speed City Search?

The Astound High Speed City Search is not your ordinary scavenger hunt. Teams of 2 - 3 work together to solve a series of clues, strategize a route, navigate the course, and face fun challenges while discovering new things about Walnut Creek and Concord.  If you always wanted to be on the "Amazing Race" or enjoy playing "Trivial Pursuit," this is the right adventure for you.

Whether you’re new to the area or a long-time native, you’ll want to take part of this exciting race right outside your doorstep.  The winning team wins $300 and 30% of proceeds go to the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano.*
