Outdoor team challenges + Great fall weather + Supporting an amazing nonprofit

Ripple Across Portland, an adventure challenge race!

Saturday, September 28th, 8:00AM-12:00PM

Grab any 3-6 people (over the age of 21) and sign up today! 

2019 is the second year of Portland's best new Fall event. Teams of up to 6 raise at least $400, and this fall, teams tap into the Social Scavenger app to compete in an epic series of challenges throughout Portland earning points for each activity completed. 

Some challenges will be easy...  say, ask a stranger what their favorite song is and sing it to them! And, some will be much more difficult like building your own raft with some duct tape, then completing a challenge in Casco Bay. (Or, something crazy fun like that.)

Best your opponents and the winners will earn a lobster bake on Cow Island.  Plus, we'll kickoff with a pre-party on Friday night and end with a celebration that includes local food, tasty (adult) beverages, and music for all participants.

The event is 21+.  All that we ask is that your team does a bit of fundraising to support Rippleffect, a vibrant 501(c)3 whose mission is to promote youth development and leadership through adventure, healthy communities, and living sustainably.

Or in other words, with Ripple Across Portland, you'll get to have fun and do good.  That way, you'll know that you've won before you even begin the adventure! Two winning teams will emerge, one from the Open Adventure Challenge and one from the Corporate Team Challenge.

How fast can you Ripple Across Portland?
