The GRAIL HUNT is a scavenger hunt. It is open to all who have raced at least one race in the Cross Crusade series in the same calendar year.
The GRAIL HUNT starts October 4, 2016 and concludes the date of the Cross Crusade Series Awards Ceremony.
The GRAIL HUNT is conducted on public property in and around Portland. It follows a 39-mile route that traverses the city. The route: https://ridewithgps.com/routes/16496594
Hunters will look for (12) Orange ICONS. You will know the ICON when you see it: it is a bright orange painted CC Cross, which will be placed in plain sight along the GRAIL HUNT route. Within 100 meters of each Icon a RELIC or the HOLY GRAIL is hidden in plain sight. RELICS have the CC Cross on them. Only Ryan Weaver has found the HOLY GRAIL. He says it is GOLD. Empty Oly cans are NOT the HOLY GRAIL.
If any RELIC is not found after 1 week of placing, Clues to the locations of the ICONS will be posted on the Cross Crusade’s Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter accounts and will be posted on the Cross Crusade web site. Clues may be in the form of rhymes or riddles. Requests for clues made must be made in rhyme format and sent to Kevin Blair and Rick Potestio.
Retrieve the RELIC or the HOLY GRAIL. Report the code written on it to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Put the words ”Grail Hunt Relic” in the subject line.
The Finder of the first RELIC will be awarded a 2016 Cross Crusade Season Pass. Finders of the remaining 11 RELICS will be awarded a 2017 Cross crusade Season Pass. Finder of the HOLY GRAIL will be awarded a GRAND PRIZE.
- All Participants (Crusaders) must race at least one Cross Crusade Race to be eligible.
- Crusaders may find only ONE RELIC or the GRAIL and can claim only one Prize.
- Only ONE RELIC/Prize is allowed per family, clan or tribe. Prizes are not transferable.
- The HOLY GRAIL Prize may be a trip or prize of equal value.
