Murder Mystery 5k - Long Beach...

  • 1K Run:- 1K Run
  • 5K Run:- Run 3.1 Miles
Saturday, October 1, 2016
Rock Bottom Restaurant
1 Pine Ave
Long Beach

Do you enjoy Detective Shows and 5K races? How about new challenge? 

This is not your ordinary 5k race nor is this an ordinary scavenger hunt race. This is a Murder Mystery 5k race! 

You will be running around town in a 3.1 mile radius (just like a 5k), solving clues and riddles (just like a scavenger hunt). What makes us different is while running around 3.1 mile radius solving clues and riddles, you will also be solving a murder crime scene. That's right, you will be a detective for a day, scattered around town solving a murder. 
To win this race, you will need more than just speed. You will need critical thinking skills, intuition, and a pair of comfortable shoes.  
You will also need a group of 2-4 members to join your squad.
Do you have what it takes?

Event details and schedule

Get ready for the best Mystery challenge you ever took. We will begin check-in at 12:00 pm and will be taking registration up to the start of the race. You should bring a cell phone and a digital camera to show your pictures at the end of the race. A smartphone is ideal. Maps are also handy; I also recommend a pen or pencil to take notes and water to drink. Dress comfortably.
We begin by assigning you to an unsolved mystery and hand out a set of clues. You can use your smart phones and smart friends as much as you want for help on clues. For the checkpoints that mention a riddle, you must check in with the Murder Mystery official, answer the riddle, and get your picture taken before moving on. On all checkpoints and dares, you must get a picture with both team members to show you were both there. This is a team race. You must be together throughout the race. You may walk, run or use public transportation to get to your destination. We expect the winners will finish the race in about 2 hours and most of you will finish under 4 hours.
