Do you like a good challenge? Both physical and mental? Then this brand new running experience, RUN TO ESCAPE: MISSION MT OLYMPUS, is exactly what you’re looking for! Compete in the challenge by running races, and progressing forward only after solving the puzzles and unlocking access codes! There are six races in all.
To take part, all you need to do is sign-up at runtoescapeseries.com (use code BIBRAVE10 for 10% off). You will also need to download the ASICS Runkeeper app to track your progress and listen to the audio clues during your activity.
Atalanta, the Goddess of Running, is on a quest to become the 13th major deity of the Greek Pantheon. There are six gods standing in her way, and each has created a challenge to test Atalanta’s worth. She needs you, a mortal, to help her solve those six challenges and prove she deserves a spot on Mt. Olympus.
So yeah, there’s a theme. When they said it was an experience, they meant it. I would say quite a bit of thought has gone in to putting this together and crafting the puzzles.
I’m currently in the middle of the challenge myself, and these puzzles take some thinking. Fortunately, you’re never left hanging. If you find yourself stuck (and I may have a couple of times) there is a multi-tier hint system where you can get help if needed.
This experience is totally new, I get that. You’re unlikely to have tried something like this before. Fortunately, there is a money-back guarantee. If after two of the challenges you’re not enjoying the experience, you can get your money back!
I should go now and work on the next puzzle so I can get back out on the road again for a run! Let me know if you join in on the fun and want to discuss some of the puzzles!
