Read each challenge carefully and click on the "Details" link to make sure you complete it accurately based on the requirements.
When submitting your photo or video, add the 3-digit Challenge Number to the caption box before clicking Upload. You should see a response from HQ very quickly but you do not need to wait around for it, especially if you are confident that you completed the checkpoint correctly.
Complete as many challenges as you can in the 3 hour timeframe. Challenges can be completed in any order.
Teams need to stay together throughout the race and each team member (and their body markings when possible) should be visible in every submission unless otherwise noted.
Be aware that the max length of a video that can be uploaded to Bonfyre is 9 seconds so any challenge requiring a video will be limited to 9-seconds. You can take a longer video on your camera in order to capture your team attempting the challenge and then trim it down to a 9-second clip within the app in order to show the portion with your team successfully completing the requirements.
If you have a race-related question during the race you can submit it through your Team Bonfyre. Our HQ will respond quickly and provide you with the information you need as long as it doesn't give you a competitive advantage.

Your picture can be a close up of the two ID's but HQ may ask you to take a second picture with your entire team and the two people from different states as well to make sure your team is all together.
#307: Take a picture of your team with any sign for a business that includes the letter "X" in the name of the business.

You do not have to be riding the bikes, but you need to be sitting on the seat while the bike is upright and each person's feet and legs need to be outstretched away from the floor and bike. So getting your team, and the photographer, to time it perfectly could be challenging.
