Checkpoint Challenges may consist of a small puzzle or task that each Team will need to successfully complete, as determined by the Capital One Race for Kids official(s) (each, an “Official”) present at each Challenge, in order to receive a token certifying completion of the Challenge (a “Checkpoint Token”). In order to win a Race, all 4 Team members must be the first to reach the finish line with at least 10 Checkpoint Tokens in hand (including all Checkpoint Tokens from any Challenges specified to be mandatory Challenges) and must have correctly solved the Capital One Race for Kids Final Puzzle (the “Final Puzzle”).

4. Travel. Travel in the course of a Race is only permitted by foot or public transit. Teams are not permitted to use any alternative mode of transportation during a Race. The only exception to this rule is if a Local Club event organizer explicitly designs a Checkpoint Challenge to include operation of a vehicle, in which case the Team shall be permitted to utilize alternative methods of transportation solely for the purpose of completing, or attempting to complete, such Challenge. Teams must stay together at all times during a Race and must complete each Challenge as a team unless otherwise instructed by an Official.

RACE ADVANTAGES

10.  There are three types of race advantages that Teams may earn: a Checkpoint Bypass Card, a Head Start or a Final Puzzle Clue (each a “Race Advantage”). The Race Advantage(s) available at each Race may vary, and will be published on the website of each Local Club no later than March 1, 2016. Teams may be provided with a card evidencing their receipt of a Race Advantage. Race Advantage cards must be kept in the possession of each Team for the duration of a Race or until surrendered at a Checkpoint Challenge. In addition, each Local Club may offer additional benefits before, during or after a Race to Teams that achieve a certain fundraising target (“VIP Benefits”), provided that VIP Benefits shall not confer an advantage on any team in completing or winning a Race. Eligibility and benefit of each Race Advantage and VIP Benefits are as follows:

10(a) Checkpoint Bypass Card
Eligibility:  Each Team achieving a team fundraising target of $1,000 will be awarded a Checkpoint Bypass Card.

Advantage:  An Official will allow a Team that presents a Checkpoint Bypass Card to advance to the front of the line at any one Checkpoint Challenge location. Teams must relinquish their card to the Official at that location to use this Race Advantage.  If one Team holding a Checkpoint Bypass Card arrives at a particular Checkpoint Challenge location while another Team with a Checkpoint Bypass Card is already there and both Teams attempt to use their Checkpoint Bypass Card at that particular location simultaneously, the Teams will advance to the front of the line in the order they arrived at the Checkpoint Challenge location. For example, if two Teams arrive at a Checkpoint Challenge location and both Teams attempt to utilize their Checkpoint Bypass Card, the second Team to have all four Team members arrive at the Checkpoint Challenge location will not be allowed to proceed ahead of the first Team who arrived at the Checkpoint Challenge location and used a Checkpoint Bypass Card.

10(b) Head Start

Eligibility: One Head Start will be given to Teams for reaching specific fundraising targets. The range of fundraising targets for each Head Start are set out below; the specific fundraising targets to earn a Head Start for each Race will be published on the website of each Local Club no later than March 1, 2016.

I.    $750 or $1,000 fundraised dollars = 1 minute    
II.    $1,000 or $1,500 fundraised dollars = 3 minutes
III.    $1,500 or $2,000 fundraised dollars = 5 minutes

Advantage:  At the start of each Race, teams meeting the minimum fundraising targets as provided on the website of each Local Club will be given a corresponding head start on such Race. Head Starts are not cumulative, and each team is limited to using only one Head Start during each Race.

10(c) Final Puzzle Clue
Eligibility: Teams meeting a minimum fundraising target of $1,000 will be given a Final Puzzle clue.

Advantage: At the end of each Race, the clue may help Teams solve the Final Puzzle.

10d) VIP Benefits

Eligibility: Teams meeting a minimum fundraising target of $2,500 will receive VIP Benefits on the Event Day. VIP Benefits shall be determined at the sole discretion of the Local Club for each Race, and may include, but are not limited to, the following:

I.    Access to an exclusive VIP lounge at the location of the Race;
II.    Access to a separate VIP registration area prior to the Race;
III.    Enhanced and/or free food options for Team members;
IV.    Race-related accessories, such as sun visors or bandanas;

VII.    Receipt of, or eligibility to win, a special trophy designated for Teams that have achieved the VIP Benefits fundraising target; and

The approximately retail value of VIP Benefits for each eligible Team will be $100. Actual VIP Benefits available at each Local Club will be published on the website of each Local Club no later than March 1, 2016.

Advantage: VIP Benefits shall confer no advantage to Teams in completing or winning a Race.

A promotional code must be submitted at the time the participant registers to be valid. Any participant that registers using a promotional code or codes shall not be entitled to a refund or credit in the event another promotional code is published or otherwise made available that reduces or waives the registration fee in any amount greater than the original promotional code used by such participant when they registered for a Race.

Where offered by a Local Club, the Mystery Box Challenge is optional to participating Teams and completion of the Mystery Box Challenge is not required to win a Race or to receive any Prize other than a Mystery Box Checkpoint Prize.  Teams will be provided with a clue as to the location of the Mystery Box Challenge at the same time they are given the clues for the other Checkpoint Challenges. If they so choose, each Team has the option to make their way to the Mystery Box Challenge. Upon arrival they may complete a Challenge similar to those at each of the other Checkpoint Challenges. Upon successful completion of the Mystery Box Challenge, such Teams may take one key from a bucket filled with keys. One key in the bucket will open a locked box at the Local Club’s after-party. The Team whose key opens the lock will be awarded all the contents contained therein (subject to one Team member correctly answering the mathematical skill-testing question).  If none of the Teams’ keys opens the locked box, the prize will be forfeited.  The approximate value of the contents will be published on each Local Club’s website no later than March 1, 2016, where applicable.  Chances of winning a Mystery Box Checkpoint prize depend on the number of keys in the bucket at the applicable Race and the number of participant Teams that successfully complete the Mystery Box Challenge at that Race.

Checkpoint Challenges may consist of a small puzzle or task that each Team will need to successfully complete, as determined by the Capital One Race for Kids official(s) (each, an “Official”) present at each Challenge, in order to receive a token certifying completion of the Challenge (a “Checkpoint Token”).

4. Travel. Travel in the course of a Race is only permitted by foot or public transit. Teams are not permitted to use any alternative mode of transportation during a Race. The only exception to this rule is if a Local Club event organizer explicitly designs a Checkpoint Challenge to include operation of a vehicle, in which case the Team shall be permitted to utilize alternative methods of transportation solely for the purpose of completing, or attempting to complete, such Challenge. Teams must stay together at all times during a Race and must complete each Challenge as a team unless otherwise instructed by an Official.

RACE ADVANTAGES

10.  There are three types of race advantages that Teams may earn: a Checkpoint Bypass Card, a Head Start or a Final Puzzle Clue (each a “Race Advantage”). The Race Advantage(s) available at each Race may vary, and will be published on the website of each Local Club no later than March 1, 2016. Teams may be provided with a card evidencing their receipt of a Race Advantage. Race Advantage cards must be kept in the possession of each Team for the duration of a Race or until surrendered at a Checkpoint Challenge. In addition, each Local Club may offer additional benefits before, during or after a Race to Teams that achieve a certain fundraising target (“VIP Benefits”), provided that VIP Benefits shall not confer an advantage on any team in completing or winning a Race. Eligibility and benefit of each Race Advantage and VIP Benefits are as follows:


10(a) Checkpoint Bypass Card


Eligibility:  Each Team achieving a team fundraising target of $1,000 will be awarded a Checkpoint Bypass Card.

Advantage:  An Official will allow a Team that presents a Checkpoint Bypass Card to advance to the front of the line at any one Checkpoint Challenge location. Teams must relinquish their card to the Official at that location to use this Race Advantage.  If one Team holding a Checkpoint Bypass Card arrives at a particular Checkpoint Challenge location while another Team with a Checkpoint Bypass Card is already there and both Teams attempt to use their Checkpoint Bypass Card at that particular location simultaneously, the Teams will advance to the front of the line in the order they arrived at the Checkpoint Challenge location. For example, if two Teams arrive at a Checkpoint Challenge location and both Teams attempt to utilize their Checkpoint Bypass Card, the second Team to have all four Team members arrive at the Checkpoint Challenge location will not be allowed to proceed ahead of the first Team who arrived at the Checkpoint Challenge location and used a Checkpoint Bypass Card.


10(b) Head Start


Eligibility: One Head Start will be given to Teams for reaching specific fundraising targets. The range of fundraising targets for each Head Start are set out below; the specific fundraising targets to earn a Head Start for each Race will be published on the website of each Local Club no later than March 1, 2016.

I.    $750 or $1,000 fundraised dollars = 1 minute
II.    $1,000 or $1,500 fundraised dollars = 3 minutes
III.    $1,500 or $2,000 fundraised dollars = 5 minutes

Advantage:  At the start of each Race, teams meeting the minimum fundraising targets as provided on the website of each Local Club will be given a corresponding head start on such Race. Head Starts are not cumulative, and each team is limited to using only one Head Start during each Race.

10(c) Final Puzzle Clue

Eligibility: Teams meeting a minimum fundraising target of $1,000 will be given a Final Puzzle clue.

Advantage: At the end of each Race, the clue may help Teams solve the Final Puzzle.

10d) VIP Benefits


Eligibility: Teams meeting a minimum fundraising target of $2,500 will receive VIP Benefits on the Event Day. VIP Benefits shall be determined at the sole discretion of the Local Club for each Race, and may include, but are not limited to, the following:


I.    Access to an exclusive VIP lounge at the location of the Race;
II.    Access to a separate VIP registration area prior to the Race;
III.    Enhanced and/or free food options for Team members;

The approximately retail value of VIP Benefits for each eligible Team will be $100. Actual VIP Benefits available at each Local Club will be published on the website of each Local Club no later than March 1, 2016.
