Street Scramble

A couple weeks ago, I participated in the Night and Day Challenge (the 3 hour course)-- which is a Street Scramble event. Street Scramble is an urban orienteering series-- you get a map labeled with point-valued checkpoints, and you walk, run or bike around the city finding as many as you can before the time cut-off. It's quite a fun way to see both a new city or your own backyard that you thought you knew!

For this event, maps were issued at 2:30pm and a mass start began at 4. So you had 90 minutes to plan out your route around the city for 90 minutes, 3 hours, 7 hours or 16 hours of adventure!

And truly-- your Scramble experience is WHATEVER you'd like it to be! You can run far and fast, or walk and push a stroller.

So just to prove a point..

I got a latte during my hunt.

See? You can do whatever you want!

#9-- this was one check point that sat atop..
Yes-- I climbed the cobbles up the Queen Anne hill.

Another checkpoint-- how many flags at the Fun Park?
