Summer Run Scavenger Hunt

 
It's here! Today starts the Summer Run Scavenger Hunt.
(WITH PRIZES)
 
If you've never done a running scavenger hunt, this is how it works. There will be a list of items posted (Check below) and you will have to find these items as you go on your runs or walks. Once you find something on the list, take a picture. 
 
 Then either share it on our facebook page Fairytales and Fitness ( be sure to like the page so you can follow along) or send it to us on Twitter @fairytalesnfit (make sure you follow so you can see all the other cool pics people are finding).
 
You do not have to submit entries on both twitter and facebook. One or the other is fine.  However, if you have a different name on facebook than you do on twitter, please let us know. We will be tallying up at the end.  Please make sure that you do follow us on one or the other of these social media platforms so you will know if you have won a prize at the end.
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

First thing is first though:If you want to participate and be eligible for prizes, you MUST leave a comment on this blog page letting us know.  In the comment, you might also want to let us know who you are on facebook and twitter if your name is different. That way we'll be sure to see all the pics you submit. 

And now for the list............

1. A WILD animal (Alive)....(deer, rabbit, squirrel, moose, etc.)

2. A Fence

3. A Street sign named after a tree.....(Elm, Pine, Hemlock, etc...)

4. A Flag ( any kind)

5.  A pair of orange running shoes ( or shoes that have orange on them)

6. A purple flower

7. An animal crossing sign ( deer, duck, moose?,,,etc)

8. A discarded food item or container

9. A port o potty

10. A baby stroller

11. A Yellow Labrador or Golden Retriever 

12. A house #12  or mailbox #12

13. Road kill  ( please don't hurt animals for the sake of the picture...haha)

14.  A Red car  ( please don't run in the street for this one)

17. An outside clock

18. A tree bearing fruit ( or berries).

19.  Find a word ( on a sign or store front, etc) that you can related to running.

20. A selfie

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I know some of these are pretty easy and depending on where you live/run, some can be more challenging. But don't give up. We have plenty of prizes to give out and just because you don't get all 20 of them doesn't mean that you won't be eligible for a prize.  Its about participation!

Our Sponsors that will be giving out prize packs for the Summer Run Scavenger Hunt include:

Sweatybands, Wild Planet,  Medi-Dyne/2Toms, Hippie Runner, Island boost, Pro Compression, Active Accessories


When you have found all the items on the list, be sure to let us know that you have done so.  You can use the hashtag #SummerRunHunt for all your pictures.

The scavenger hunt will start today ( May 19th) but if you have friends that want to join in, they can sign up at any time ( before it ends of course).   All entries must be submitted by June 1.

Good Luck All!
