Amazing Race Scavenger Hunt - Win Free Admission to an Upcoming Embassy Gala

Join your fellow meetup enthusiasts at this incredibly popular event. Today, we are working towards an incredible race and event in and around Washington, D.C., and perhaps MD or VA. Join us for a wonderful day of fun, exercise, creativity, and prizes.

How does it work?

1) Upon arrival we will break you into teams. Each team will be given a list of several items to retrieve. The items are all of little or no cost. (Note: If requested upon arrival we will put you on a team with any friends or other colleagues you may know.)

2) The list will also contain a location where each team must check in by a certain time. Each team should take whatever items it has and proceed to that location by the designated time. If you are late, you lose points. Teams are not expected to retrieve all of the items listed. At each check in, you may be required to do a unique task to earn extra points.

3) Throughout the day, at each location, points will be calculated, teams will get a brief time to rest, and teams will be given a different list of items to retrieve and take to the next location. There will be 5 or 6 different check-ins throughout the Washington, D.C. Area, all of which are near Metro Stations. At each check-in, teams will be given different scavenger hunt lists.

4) Bonuses are given to the first team to arrive at each respective location. Teams will leave each location in the order in which they arrived. The winning team will be the one that collects the most points. Prizes will be awarded to the top two teams.

First Prize if FREE ADMISSION to the Embassy of France Gala taking place November 1

All teams must use public transportation. Teams caught using personal cars will be disqualified. We recommend that you bring a Metro card with at least $10 on it when you arrive.

Throughout the day, you'll visit many landmarks in D.C., restaurants, schools, theaters, and much more! There are over 100 items listed and what you see depends upon your team's resolve, speed and ability to have fun!

Note: The race starts at noon sharp!

Though not required, please try to bring a digital camera.

We are meeting at the visitor center in front of the Washington Monument

NOTE: You may be asked to purchase in advance so we can plan accordingly. We will send out regular emails out on how to do this.

    Excellent fun. Enjoyed our group. Our team arrived at final stop 15 minutes before organizers there which caused the end to drag on a bit.
