Scavenger Hunt!

I recently read a post on a (new to me) running blog about a running photo scavenger hunt. I immediately thought it sounded like tons of fun and wanted to do my own! Originally, I was going to create my own hunt list, but as I started to do so I found that I was picking things that I knew I’d be able to find (ahem, that’s cheating).

Instead, I compiled a master list from a number of sources:

  • Fairytales & Fitness: This blog created the list from the post I read. I’m now following their blog, because it sounds like fun!
  • Runner Girls Podcast:  They did several scavenger hunts along w/ their 3rd season of their show. I haven’t listened to their podcast (I’m not in a podcast groove right now), but it sounds pretty good from their website.
  • Pintrest: As you may have guessed, there are a bajillion lists for scavenger hunts on pintrest.

I don’t really know how much structure this game is going to have, but to start, I randomly chose 5 items from the master list and am giving myself one week of running to find them. I also made up some other rules because that is how I roll.  If you’d like to join in the fun, find some things, and share some pictures of what you find, I’d love it!

I really only insist on number 5. If you want to drop your phone all over the place, it’s totally your decision. 🙂 (please ignore my spelling errors)

I think I might create some kind of points system, but no need to get too complicated right from the start. And, now, with no further ado, here’s what we will be hunting for this week. The random number generator selected numbers: 114, 3, 23, 71, & 1 from my master list. :

  1. Hi! 🙂 Thanks for the link back to my blog. I’m glad you found the scavenger hunt idea fun, too!

    I love that your list only has 5 things on it. The items on the Fairytales and Fitness list were a ton of fun to hunt for, but I kept forgetting everything and having to re-check their post mid-run! I’ll definitely participate in your hunt this week, thanks for putting it together!

    • Hi! I’m glad you didn’t mind the link! I like to make sure I give credit to other bloggers when I’m inspired by their ideas. Your run just sounded like so much fun, I had to do it too! I actually was going to use the same list as you, but then I knew there was no way I’d remember the whole list. Then one thing led to another, and I got carried away with a giant master list of items…haha.

      Five should be manageable to remember for a run, though! I’m glad you’re going to play along, too!

  2. This looks like so much fun! I might be able to find like 2 of these things in Seward so I probably won’t be joining in 😦 But it’s such a cute idea!
