“Keep Austin Weird” is one of official Austin slogans you hear bandied about.  If you have recently moved to the Austin area and are new to the city you may “get it”, but on the off chance that you would like to further explore the unique Austin culture, you should sign up for the Austin Scavenger Dash.  The Scavenger Dash occurs year round in cities throughout the United States, but you can participate in the Austin Scavenger Dash on Sunday, February 10.

The Scavenger Dash is described as “a wildly fun urban adventure” where “teams of two solve twelve clues, scavenge items, take photos, complete fun challenges and have a wild adventure…all while discovering the city in a whole different way. It’s an amazing race on a local level, where anyone can participate.”  With Valentine’s Day just around the corner this would be a fun and different date to take with your significant other.

You will want to check out the zany rules before signing up, you may only travel by foot or use public transportation! Crazy costumes are encouraged.  Past challenges and clues include: decoding secret messages, building a human pyramid, riding a big wheel, etc.  For more information and to register: http://scavengerdash.com/index.html
