The GRAIL HUNT is a scavenger hunt, open to all Crusaders who race the River City Bicycles Cross Crusade, in the same calendar year of the hunt.
The GRAIL HUNT is conducted in and around Portland, Oregon on a unique bike route identified by a long lost map.
Crusaders will follow this path and look for 13 Orange CROSS ICONS along the PATH. If an icon is found in a park on the map with the symbol P with a circle around it, then it can be found anywhere in that park. If icon is not in those parks it will be on route. Within 100 METERS of the CROSS ICON, Crusaders will find one of 13 RELICs. (You will know a relic when you see it, it will be marked with the cross of the Crusade. Empty beer bottles are not relics.)
The 13th ICON will reveal the location of the GRAIL. It is rumored to be a large golden chalice. Only Ryan Weaver has actually seen it. His memory has been erased.
Retrieve a RELIC, and report the CODE on the RELIC with your full contact information to Rick Potestio: email@example.com and Kevin Blair: firstname.lastname@example.org. Put the word "GRAIL HUNT RELIC" in the subject line.
Finders of the RELICS win a CC Season's Pass to the following year, and are eligible for the GRAND PRIZE, a trip to the WORLD CHAMPIONSHIPS OF CYCLOCROSS in Louisville, Kentucky ($800.00 max value).
Finder of the GRAIL automatically wins the GRAND PRIZE.
If no one has found the GRAIL, then the GRAND PRIZE will be awarded to one of the RELIC finders by drawing names from a pint glass at the Cross Crusade Awards Ceremony.
The Kid's Grail Hunt is a scavenger hunt, open to all Kiddie Kross Racers who race the River City Bicycles Cross Crusade, in the same calendar year of the hunt.

Kiddie Krossers will follow the park's paths and look for painted ICONS along the PATHs, with the Cross Crusade CROSS. Within 5 METERS of the ICON, Kiddie Krossers will find a RELIC.
Finders of the RELICS win a special prize. The Hunt lasts until all RELICS are found or 1pm.
