How does it work?
At Street Scramble, participants are given a map with checkpoints circled on it and a short time period (usually 30 minutes) to decide which checkpoints they want to visit and their routes between them. To make it extra interesting- checkpoints have different point values and those who collect the most points are the winners! There are many divisions to compete in, including several family divisions, although you do not need to be competitive to enjoy Street Scramble.
Once the planning session is over, the race director gathers everyone, gives a short briefing, and upon shouting, "Everyone, SCRAMBLE!!" the race clock begins! Everyone goes dashing, walking, scooting, and bicycling away in different directions.
The checkpoints you're looking for are simply features in the cityscape, such as a statue or plaque. To prove that you've visited a checkpoint, you'll answer a multiple choice question on your answer sheet.
Example Question: What is the statue holding?
Example Answers: A) Fish, B) Basket, C) Sword
Keep an eye on your watch so that you'll return to the finish line on time, or risk losing points for every minute you're late! However, one clever work-around if you've signed up for the 90-minute category and you think you'll be late: you can change your mind and participate in the 3-hour event instead!
After the finish, stick around. Awards are given out in eleven categories, and it's fun to compare routes and strategies with other teams.
