OVERVIEW
 
Trailhead Ultras and Northline Navigation are proud to present a Pop-Up Invisible Scavenger Hunt Run at HOLE IN THE FENCE, Wilderness Park, Tampa, FL. It will take place between Saturday, August 1 at 7:00 am THROUGH Sunday night, midnight, on August 16th. 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. We call it, “RIOYO,” short for Run It On Your Own.
 
How it works — after signing up through Northline Navigation, you will receive an email with specific instructions. You will use a free smartphone app called UsynligO (which means, “invisible orienteering” in Norwegian,) a printed paper course map that you can print at home, yourself, or pick up at The Running Shop (TBD.) The course is open from 7 am-5 pm (please be off the trails by dark) every day between the open and close of the event window.
 
When you launch the app and begin the activity, the clock is ticking and you’ll travel, on foot, to as many checkpoints marked on the map as you can. Collecting all the points in the lowest elapsed time wins. The UsynligO app keeps your route and keeps score. Checkpoints are 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/or your teammates 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 leader board, visible inside the app. You can also share your GPX route to yourself for uploading to Strava, or whatever social training platform you use.
 
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!
