FLINT, MI — The Treasure Race app is an updated approach to the typical treasure hunt. The app features the camaraderie of a road rally combined with the ingenuity of a scavenger hunt, some Indiana Jones-esk clues and the chance to win a cash prize, according to its creators.

The newly launched interactive app-based experience, Treasure Race, was designed to engage your team in a multi-day adventure throughout your selected state. Each race will vary in size, duration, and in total number of miles traveled. Bbe prepared for unpredictable circumstances, according to the Treasure Race website.

The first public Treasure Race will be held in Genesee County at 10 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 29. The Treasure Race team is offering a $5,000 prize for the first-place team and waive the registration fee for this hometown race, according to a Treasure Race press release.

“This is where we live, this is where we work. We love Flint and can’t wait for our community to be the first to experience a Treasure Race,” said the team’s COO, Jennifer Wenzlick.

All are welcome to register, and pre-registration is required.

Wenzlick and two other Genesee County natives created the app.

According to the website, each state is divided into five regions with each region containing five clues of differing point value. Teams will independently select the region in which they prefer to start the race; there is no official starting line. Once a region is selected your team will be restricted to that region until all five clues have been answered. A region is considered complete once 20,000 points have been earned.
