Two Rules Running and Northline Navigation are proud to present the Invisible Scavenger Hunt Run, which will take place ALL DAY beginning Saturday, May 30th at 8am and ending at 8pm around the public spaces of Downtown Gainesville. This is a unique event that respects everyone's personal space in the era of COVID-19 social distancing, allows us to all run (or walk, hike, shimmy, Prancercize, etc) the same course and then compare results (and routes)... except, not all at once.

How it works -- after signing up through Run Sign Up you will receive an email with specific instructions. Then you will use a free smartphone app called UsynligO (which means, "invisible orienteering" in Norwegian,) a printed paper course map that you will pick up from Lloyd Clarke Sports, arrive at the start area (marked with a triangle on the map) near the Cade Museum on your own schedule on the day of the event, and begin the course. You can go ANY TIME from 8am to 8pm on 5/30, but you MUST FINISH by 8pm.

When you launch the app and begin the activity, the clock is ticking and you'll have 2 hours to travel, on foot, to as many checkpoints marked on the map as you can. Checkpoints are simply marked as circles at specific features in the landscape. When you arrive at a checkpoint, the app (running silently in your pocket) senses your position via GPS and marks your visit with a snazzy little tune to indicate that you've FOUND IT. High five yourself, and carry on to the next one!

Can you get them ALL? If so, who can do it the FASTEST?

All along the way, UsynligO records your track (just like Strava-type apps) and keeps score of how many (and which) points you have collected. Once time runs out (or you quit,) your score is displayed on the Leaderboard, visible inside the app. You can also share your GPX route to yourself for uploading to Strava, or whatever social training platform you use.

At the end of the day, the course will close and all results will be collected and presented online. Submitted GPX routes run through a REPLAY and post-race analysis video of "interesting performances" and "questionable decisions."

So, put on your running shoes, your thinking caps, and your adventure outfits. Take lots of pictures, share your experiences with others, and spread the word because Invisible Scavenger Hunt Runs are here, and they're here to stay!
