I finally completed the last race in the Run To Escape: Mt Olympus challenge. It was nice to be able to spread out all the (six) races and puzzles to fit my schedule, as work has been very busy lately.
This was a running experience like no other.
While this is a virtual experience, I was never alone. There is an online community where I could engage with (real) people at each stage of the challenge. There is also a multi-level hint system that I could use if I got stuck.
I thought the theme and the puzzles were very clever, and were challenging enough to keep me engaged and looking forward to the next one.
The longest run distance is 6 miles. If this distance is too daunting, there is nothing wrong with walking some of it. The other runs in the challenge range from 3-5 miles.
The audio clues play during the runs using the ASICS Runkeeper App (available for free for both Android and Apple Phones). I had not used Runkeeper before, but it worked great and Run To Escape provided all the instructions needed to get set-up.
I liked some of the other features of Runkeeper that I saw, that are intended to keep you motivated (if you continue to use it after the challenge is over).
There are also links to great food and drink recipes and even music playlists recommended by the Greek gods themselves.
