HTA Austin Wrap-Up

What a thrilling race! I mean I was excited! Team Werewolf sprinted across the finishline in 1:11:42 then received 28 minutes of bonus time! Their final time is the fastest in High Trek Adventure history! (It helps that Austin doesn't have many hills!; I wonder what their time would be if the race had been in San Francisco.)

Team Unveiled Faces comprised of James Scivally and Dessa Evans had one of the most creative costumes ever! They made their own t-shirts, but the sewed clear plastic pockets on the backs of their shirts where they inserted Polaroids of each TREKpoint the successfully completed! How cool is that! I wonder if someone can top their creativity?!?!br />

I'd like to thank Zax Pints and Plates for being fabulous hosts. Can't wait to return. Also, want to give a shout out to Austin Adventure Boot Camp, Hill Country Outdoors, Liberty Cafe, Red Licorice Event, Run Tex, Saint Arnold Brewing, SoCo District, Terr Frima, Timbuk2 and Yelp

We'd also like to thank our Amazing Race celebrity Christy & Kelly and Jodi.

More Info

You've registered for this crazy train experience of a lifetime, so what next? You and your team partner will be on a lively, one-day, Austin amazing race. This scavenger hunt will take you to unmarked checkpoints known as TREKpoints and explore Austin like you've never experienced it before as the puzzle unfolds. Our high octane energy adventure game might take you through the many exciting neighborhoods of Austin like Hyde Park, University of Texas, Clarksville, Downtown, and some nifty places you might not even know about!

On this sensational metro adventure, you'll solve clues ranging from pop culture to math (nothing tougher than 8th grade) to American history, anagrams, sudoku, and so much more. It's like a real life Trivial Pursuit game! Along the way you'll face exciting challenges like bowling a strike, identifying a flavor of ice cream or putting a puzzle together.

In case of a disaster including, but not limited to flooding, tornadoes, terrorism, High Trek Adventure will decide whether or not to cancel the event based on the safety of participants and staff. In the event of a cancelation, refunds will NOT be issued; risk is assumed by all participants. However, participants will have the option to transfer registration to a different 2009 city, excluding Championship Race.

*If High Trek Adventure does not provide participants with a swag bag then the first round of drinks is on us!
