The Demand Project’s Xplore for Justice Scavenger Hunt Management Team. The event is scheduled for Saturday, October 1, at the Center of the Universe.
The Demand Project’s Xplore for Justice Scavenger Hunt will commence Saturday, October 1, at the Center of the Universe. The Center of the Universe is located in downtown Tulsa at the apex of a rebuilt span of the old Boston Street Bridge between 1st & Archer Street and is directly northwest of the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame (Formerly the old Union Train Depot). The Xplore for Justice Scavenger Hunt will begin at 10:00 a.m. Participating teams should plan to arrive at 9:00 a.m. to join in pre-race activities.
Xplore is a team-based adventure race through the city for athletes and fun-seekers of any and all ability levels. Teams may travel on foot or use public transit as they race to various locations around the city, solve clues and interact with locals to complete wild challenges. Xplore is a massive scavenger hunt gone wild providing city experiences like never before. You’ll meet lots of other fun adventurers and get a great team workout. Top teams will win prizes and all teams receive entry into the Finish Line Festival which includes music, food trucks and great sponsorship giveaways.
The day of the event, each participating team will simultaneously receive a text message containing 40 clues and challenges to begin immediately. When your team completes a challenge, you will take a specific photo and forward it to Xplore Adventures, the judging organization that will digitally validate and record each completed challenge. The scavenger hunt is a timed event. The first three teams to complete all 40 challenges will be declared winners and receive some really cool swag!
Pre-registration for the Xplore for Justice Scavenger Hunt may be completed online at the event website. Once your team is registered, you will receive a confirmation email including the date and time to pick up your Team Packet at The Vintage Pearl located at 8144 South Lewis Avenue in Tulsa. Each team member will receive a very cool Demand Project Cape for participating in the event.
Registration for the event is $45 for adults 18 years and older, $35 for kids 17 and under. You may also elect to register as a Super Hero Entry for $55. Each super hero will receive a race clue to one of the challenges, giving your team an edge in the competition. The Super Hero package will also include lots of additional merchandise. All proceeds from this event go to the VAST Rescue Team.
