Once we reach the final destination, we’ll stay for the afterparty and I’ll share with non-racers our location via in the SHRM party text group.

Starting the Race 

The race begins with a clue being sent by text message and email. I’ll be sending the clue to your email address at 7:30 PM. You can also sign up to receive the first clue via text message. Once you register you’ll get that information. Please only share this information with your teammate. I will be at the first destination checking the registration list to ensure that everyone participating has paid the entry fee so no cheating

Arriving at a Location

Each location will have a designated Amazing HR Representative. You’ll know them by the sign they are carrying. Approach them to receive the code word to text in to receive your next clue. The first 25 teams will be rewarded with a drink at each checkpoint. I’m limiting the cost to no more than $7 per beverage at each stop.

Share on Social Media 

You are encouraged (not required) to snap a pic, post an update or tweet at each location using the #AmazingHRrace hashtag. Extra mega bonus points if when sharing you include the #SHRM18 hashtag.

Fabulous Prizes 

The first team to reach the final destination will receive $400. The second team will receive $200 and third place will receive $100. The prize amount increases the more racers we get so encourage them to join us by visiting I’m keeping tickets up for teams until 7:30 PM and solo tickets until 6:30 PM.

Amazing HR Race After Party 

Once the first three teams arrive, I will be sending out our location to the SHRM party text group. If your friends want to come join you, invite them to text ‘SHRM’ to 55678. I’ll be sharing our location there once we have our winners!

Getting Help 

Text me at 405.343.5751. I will not be at every destination, but I will do my part to help you when I can. I’m excited to be racing with you.
