IVS Selfie Scavenger Hunt-Summer Edition!

05/17/2020 8:45 AM | Roland Savoie (Administrator)

We had some great responses from our first Scavenger Hunt – so we have a new one for you to try – (Thanks to Kelly Stark!).  When you are out on your training runs – snap a selfie according to the below list.  These new scavenger hunt items should be generic enough that you can find them in your town if you look hard enough – creativity is welcome! Once you have gotten as many as you can – post as an album on the IVS Facebook page with the hashtag #IVSHunt2

You can post your pics at any time but the contest will close at midnight on June 27th.  

The person with the most selfies with the correct items/directions will win!  What will you win?  That is still to be determined – but it will be FABULOUS!


  • 1.   OBEY THE LAW at All Times.
  • 2.   Do not enter private property. If you need to ask a neighbor for an item or permission to take picture, do so.  If/when talking or interacting with strangers, business owners, or community workers, all participants must be polite and respectful.
  • 3.   Play fair. Remember it’s all in good fun and there is no need to ruin someone’s good time.
  • 4.   Do not take a photo of two items together. They must be in separate pictures.
  • 5.   Each photo counts for one point.  Multiple pictures of the same item does not count.  Multiple pictures of the same directive do not count.
  • 6.   Pictures need to be numbered with the corresponding item/directive.
  • 7.   All pictures must be taken while doing your run/training.
  • 8.   Pictures without the above criteria will be disqualified.
  • 9.   The decision of the Judge is final.
