Registration: $30 before March 21, $40 after
In Evergreen BC’s Green City Race, teams will race against the clock, (and each other!), as they put their physical, mental, and environmental savvy to the test. Using public transit and their own two feet, teams will explore Vancouver’s hottest green destinations, complete green challenges, scour for green scavenger hunt items, and snap photos of ‘green sightings’ for bonus points.
The race will begin at 11am at Evergreen’s mobile urban orchard at the Great Northern Way Campus. Each team of two or three will be given a set of clues that they will need to solve to move from one location to the next. To win, teams will need to quickly complete challenges like removing invasive species, snapping photos of electric car charging stations, and leaving thank you tags on bicycle handle bars! Winning teams will be awarded a variety of green prizes at the post-race party from 2-4pm.
Tickets for the Green City Race are $30 before March 21 and $40 afterwards. All proceeds from the race support Evergreen’s community programs to green our city. Teams can register at: www.evergreen.ca/greencityrace.
