Details: This is the second annual Scavenger Hunt for Empire Runners. You will have 15 days to run and photo op in these locations. This run begins on April 15-April 30, 2022. You can combine some or all of the locations into one run or split it up into different runs/walks. If you split into several different runs or walks, then the minimum per day mileage is 1 mile. 

Cost: Free to Empire Runners with a suggested donation to the Student Grant Fund: Every year (even in 2020) Empire Runners give scholarships to graduating seniors. Typically, our biggest event, Kenwood Footrace, generates some of the funding for the Student Grant Fund. $5 of your membership dues is allocated towards this special fund. We boost this fund yearly through raffles, auctions, and our club events. This special event is meant to help replenish this fund so that we can support our high school graduating seniors in 2022.
