September 26th

It’s part scavenger hunt and part double-dog-dare; it’s Beyond the Backyard, a new Habitat Challenge.

Beyond the Backyard is a unique fundraiser for our time; it’s quarantine-friendly as there’s no start/finish line and no gathering.

Teams of 3-8 people race to complete 24 challenges in the categories of PHYSICAL, FIND, SKILL and FUN -submitting photo/video proof to race HQ along the way. Suited for all ages and stages, this quest is made for athletes and fun-seekers of all ability levels.

You can contain your team and the race to your immediate family and your own block, or expand out to include some close friends and your city. No matter your choice, it’s a great way for a quarantine pod to shake things up and have some fun! Best of all, the race funds affordable homeownership in our communities.

Sign up today and hold Saturday 9/26 for Beyond the Backyard! You may get wet, you may get a little dirty, but you will definitely laugh.
