Treasure Hunt 5k:

New for 2013 is a wild and wacky Treasure Hunt 5k event. Contestants in this event look for healthy food products hidden along the 5k route, lug them back to the finish line, and receive corresponding time bonuses. Fastest adjusted time wins the event! Top 5 win cash cards at Whole Foods Market (minimum 50 participants required or denominations will be halved): $100, $75, $50, $25, $25

Treasure Hunt Competition Details:

To play Treasure Hunt, you simply visit the checkpoint at the finish line and get the time bonuses counted for your race number. You are still entered in age-division competition; we will count your Treasure Hunt time separately for the cash prizes. You must find and deliver at least two bonus items to quality for the Treasure Hunt awards. Food items on course have time bonuses written on them (e.g., potato small time, watermelon large time). Any clothing ok - no bags or backpacks!
