Beginning today, Minnesota plays host to one of the largest outdoor scavenger hunts in the world.
Checkpoint MN launches today, and it includes more than $45,000 in prizes and 10 checkpoints scattered at outdoors destinations around the state.
The event is a do-it-yourself adventure. Anyone eligible can participate. Earn prizes by traveling to checkpoints, taking photos of yourself with checkpoint signs, and uploading them to the site.
Checkpoint Minnesota: Do-It-Yourself Adventure
Last year, hundreds of people made the trip to visit checkpoints around Minnesota. The event awarded gear and prizes to everyone who participated.
To round it all out, a bunch of other outdoor brands offered gear ranging from jackets to sleeping bags to boots and more. A big thanks to all who stepped up to encourage winter adventures: Big Agnes, Danner, Fischer, The North Face, KEEN, Clif Bar, FireDisc, EnerPlex, YETI, Wolverine, BUFF, STIHL, Mountain Khakis, LifeStraw, and more.
Now get signed up and head out!
There’s a massive course waiting out there in Minnesota, and participants are loading up today to hit the road and get outside in search of the checkpoint signs!
