2020 Route 66 Challenge 

October 10th, 2020 

How It Works 

There will be 8 total Adventures, Detours are optional. Points are given out upon completion of each Adventure at the Adventure scoring. Earn points by successfully solving trivia and completing tasks packed into "Adventure Envelopes". All Adventures are REAL and required to complete the competition. However, not every Detour is a real opportunity for points. The day begins with an Adventure Envelope which contains everything needed for the first Adventure and Detour clues. Additional Adventure envelopes are provided throughout the competition. Use the drive time to solve the trivia and accomplish the task. To record your Route 66 Challenge journey and earn points, you will need a digital camera and Internet-enabled device or smartphone to participate. Additional points will be awarded in order of arrival time at the finish line, although there are NO extra points awarded for arriving at the finish line early. 

Adventure Envelope Contains

The Adventure Envelope contains a clue/trivia that will reveal a location, lead to further instructions or additional directions.

Detours and Extras

Detours are "mini adventures" that are off the beaten path. They vary in point value. Some Detours are not real and are impossible to complete. It is up to the participants to strategize and decide which Detours to take (if any), and which to avoid.

Shop Local Detour Receipts for anything you buy along the route (example: gasoline, snacks, etc.) can be used for points. Present receipts at the finish line.

Overall Finish

The registered team and vehicle crossing the finish line, with the most points, wins the game. Awards will go to the Winning Team, Best Team Theme, Best Social Media Team, Give Back Award, and to the team that 'I Got Kicked on Route 66'.
