How does this work?
What is your refund policy?
What do I get for completing this experience?
Do I get a shirt and a medal?
Nope. We’re taking it easy on the planet so we’re skipping the swag and focusing on giving you a phenomenal virtual experience. We’re guessing you already have a drawer full of shirts, but you’ve probably never had the satisfaction of completing 6 runs totaling more than 26.2 miles while simultaneously helping one of the Greek gods earn her spot in the Pantheon.
How do I complete the runs?
You must download and use the RunKeeper App to track your runs in order to hear the audio clues you will need to solve your next puzzle. Once downloaded, just press START as you begin to run and the app will give you audio clues as you hit certain milestones. Listen closely to those clues because you will need them to solve the next puzzle! When you finish the run, press STOP and your run will automatically be uploaded to RunKeeper and you will receive an email with your next puzzle!
How do I know how far to run?
As you solve each puzzle, the required distance of your next run will be revealed!
Can I complete my runs on a treadmill?
Unfortunately, no. The RunKeeper App uses GPS markers to trigger the audio clues so this experience won’t work if you’re running on a treadmill.
Will there be awards?
Awards are not a part of the Run to Escape experience. There will be giveaways and discounts! All finishers of Run to Escape: Mission Mt. Olympus will earn access to the digital Pantheon Party upon completing their final Challenge and puzzle!
Do I have to upload my run somewhere?
You need to use the RunKeeper app to track your runs in order to hear the audio clues that will help you solve the next puzzle. Open up the event in the Runkeeper App and press START to begin each run segment. After you complete your run and press STOP, it will automatically be uploaded to RunKeeper.
These puzzles are hard! Can I get a hint?
Yes, of course! Upon registration, you’ll hear from Hermes, who will share hints with you throughout the experience. Be sure to use them wisely!
Do I have to complete all of the puzzles?
You do if you want to complete the experience and help Atalanta become the Goddess of Running! Each puzzle will give you the info you need to tackle your next run. And you didn’t hear it from us but you might want to hang on to those puzzle solutions until the very end 😜.
