Upon arriving at the starting line at Castor Beach and receiving their set of clues, each team began to decipher and locate each task.

Teams took on mental and physical challenges across campus and even at The Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI).


The race commanded the participants to use their knowledge of USF, strength, stamina, and insight to decode clues similar to the above and complete tasks.

On discovering each location, teams were asked to complete various tasks like landing a Frisbee in a disc-golf target or properly setting a table to USF Dining specifications.
