Map Orienteering Events

Treasure Hunts, Orienteering &
Puzzle Solving Races

For Kids & Adults Too!

We organize a wide range of fun outdoor events throughout the year. Many of our races are orienteering in style - individuals receive a map and must locate six to ten locations as fast as possible. Some races are set up for teams, such as really large scale orienteering events and puzzle hunts.

Danville Adventure Races

The Original Puzzle Hunt

There were 5 puzzles created and hidden all around the Quail Gardens neighborhood in Danville, CA. One savvy team of 6 kids worked on solving the puzzles until 11 p.m. on a Saturday night, then continued first thing Sunday morning to wrap up the adventure. And that's where Danville Adventure Races began!

Here is how the puzzle hunt works. The team finds a hidden container at a location in a picture. They open the container, take one puzzle, then seal the container tightly and carefully place it exactly as it was found. Then, the team solves the puzzle, goes to a URL here on as written on the puzzle paper. They enter the answer and, when it's correct, a picture will be revealed showing where to pick up the next puzzle. After the 5th puzzle is solved, the adventure is complete!

We've now placed this original puzzle hunt with 5 puzzles in these park settings in Danville, San Ramon, and Pleasanton. Select the location that is closest to you, and on the following page, you will see the "drop" location, where to find the first puzzle and get started!
