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.
GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN!
#100: Take a video of your entire team running up any set of bleachers for a full 9 seconds. Bleachers can be metal, wood, or any other material as long as they're actual spectator bleachers. You can run up the steps adjacent to the bleachers so that you're not trying to run up the actual seats. If the bleachers are not very tall, run up and down them continuously for 9 seconds.
#101: Take a video of any ONE team member completing the "Cereal Box Grab". Stand on one leg, bend down and grab the lid of any opened box of cereal with your teeth and lift it up as you stand back up on one foot. Must remain on one foot the entire time and can not use your arms or bump into anything else.
#102: Habitat For Humanity Challenge: take a video of any ONE team member using a hammer to completely hit a nail into a piece of wood within a 9-second continuous video. Start with a loose nail (not in the wood) and finish with the nail head flush to the wood surface.
#103: Take a video of your entire team all crossing under any "boom barrier", which is the often red and white arm at toll booths, parking facilities, etc, that raises up once you've paid. Each team member must bend down and cross under the boom arm without reaching down to touch the ground or have their back hit the boom at any point. Please complete this somewhere where traffic is not a safety concern.
#104: Take a picture of your team while each racer has a standard-size bottle of water (16 ounces or so) squeezed horizontally between their knees. The bottle should be unsupported (not held) other than by the insides of each racer's legs.
#105: Take a video of your team all pushing any RED colored car from a complete stand still, for a full 9 seconds. The car can be any shade of red, and should be in neutral with the brake off but you must have a driver in the car who can steer and apply brakes as needed. Please complete this somewhere where traffic is not a safety concern.
#106: Take a video while each racer is arm wrestling a separate stranger inside of a library or bookstore. What makes this challenge tough is the embarrassment factor of trying to quietly recruit strangers to arm wrestle your team members and then quietly wrestling them without disturbing other patrons in this normally prim and proper environment.
#107: Take a video of your entire team lined up side by side along any yellow painted curb and completing 4 full "Step-Up" exercises on the curb. The team must all be along a section of yellow curb so if your whole team can't fit along the yellow painted section then you'll need to find a longer section. Click the Details link below to see a better description of what the Step-Up exercise consists of.
#108: Take a picture of your entire team all hanging from any chain link fence so that your feet are off the ground at the time of the picture. If any team members are having trouble holding themselves on then you'll need to time your picture perfectly as they jump and momentarily place their feet against it right as the picture is taken.
#109: Take a picture of your entire team on any grassy surface all completing the "Plank Caterpillar". Work together as a team to form one long line of planking with each racer either planking on their palms or forearms and each racers feet are up on the shoulders of the racer behind them. Click the Details link below to see a better description of what the Plank Caterpillar looks like.
#200: Take a video of any one of your team members flipping a standard (16 ounces or so) bottle of water onto a table, or hard surface at least waist high, and getting it to successfully remain standing upright once it lands. The bottle can be filled with as much water as needed to improve your chances of completing the challenge successfully.
#201: Take a picture of any ONE of your team members with at least 6 Cheerios stacked on their nose, while they are standing or squatting and not holding onto anything. You can use a generic brand of Cheerio if needed, as long as it's the same size and shape.
#202: Take a video of any racer from your team completing the "Coin Bowling Challenge". Balance a nickel upright on it's edge on any hard surface. Then from at least 5 feet away roll another coin and knock down the nickel. The nickel must be knocked down while the coin is rolling on it's edge, not after it has fallen and sliding across the surface flat.
#203: Take a video of every racer on the team untying one shoelace of another racer on the team and then retying it within one continuous 9-second video. If someone on your team isn't wearing shoes with laces then you can substitute them for a stranger with laces. But each person completing the challenge should have someone untying and retying one of their shoes, and they should do the same for someone else. So the key will be working together and timing it so everyone can do it within one video.
#204: Habitat For Humanity Challenge: stretch out a measuring tape that's at least 25 feet in length and then have any racer stand at one end of it and throw a homemade paper airplane so that it travels that entire distance. Multiple racers can be attempting this but only one plane needs to make it. The plane just needs to make it the full 25 feet across flat ground, but does not have to travel all 25 feet in the air.
#205: Using 6 full beverage cans of standard size (soda, beer, etc) place one horizontally on a flat and hard surface and then stack the remaining 5 cans vertically on top of that can. Then take a picture of any two racers balancing the entire structure by only placing one hand each on the top can. The structure should not be held or leaning up against anything else other than one hand from each racer.
#206: Take a video of any member of your team making a backwards foul shot on a regulation basketball hoop. If the court you're at doesn't have a designated foul line just stand approximately 15 feet from the hoop. You can use any ball as long as it's roughly the size of a basketball (not really small like a tennis ball, etc).
#207: Hang at least seven total clothing hangers from any door frame, attached in a long vertical chain formation. The hook of each hanger should be balanced in the center of the bar on the hanger above it (so that the bottom of each hanger is parallel to the ground, like it would be if it were hanging in the closet). Once you have at least seven hangers dangling take a picture of your entire team with the full hanger chain visible. For a picture example of what the chain should look like click on the Details Page link below.
#208: Take a video of your team working together to keep a bubble in the air for a full 9-second continuous video without hitting anything or bursting. The bubble could be from a bottle of bubble mix, or it could be a homemade version using dish soap, etc. As long as it's a decent size so that our HQ can see that it survives for a full 9 seconds.
#209: Take a video of any racer on your team using one spoon to catapult another spoon up and into any sized drinking glass or cup. Both spoons will be facing up, and you will hit the wide part of one spoon to force it's handle to flip the second spoon up and into the glass. Multiple racers can be attempting this but only one spoon needs to land in the glass or cup. For a picture example of how to set up the spoon catapult click on the Details Page link below.
#300: Take a video of your team donating a bag full of food to any local food pantry, shelter, or similar organization. Team should be actively donating the items either inside the organization or placing the items in a regulation donation bin.

(KIND CHALLENGE).
#301: Take a picture of your entire team while each racer is "flashing the X" (making an X with your forearms), and any regulation Railroad Crossing sign is visible in the background. Must be an actual railroad crossing street sign and not just a toy or picture of one.
#302: Take a picture of your entire team while they're putting any VHS tape into any VCR device.
#303: Take a picture of your team while any racer is using a corded phone that is NOT a public pay phone. Phone must have a cord from the receiver to the base but can not be a public pay phone.
#304: In honor of the movie "Finding Dory", take a picture of your team with any live fish. The fish must be alive but does not have to be exotic like Dory.

#306: Take a picture of your team and any billboard that has a person or food item featured on it. The billboard needs to be a typical roadside billboard size, and not just some small sign or poster.

#400: Take a video of your team completing a 3-person Card Pass Challenge (sometimes called "Suck and Blow"). The first racer places a playing card against their mouth and sucks in air in order to keep the card against their lips without using their hands. The card must then be passed to a second racer and then a third racer (without dropping it) using only their mouths to suck the card against their lips. If you only have 2 racers, pass it to the second racer and then walk to the other side of them and suck it back to your mouth.
#401: Take a picture of any 4 racers, or racers and as many strangers needed to have 4 total people all inside any standard outdoor Port O' Potty. The door can be open as long as 4 total people are all inside of one Port O' Potty.
#402: Take a video of your entire team dancing like crazy while any regulation jukebox is playing music in the background. Team must be at the location where an actual jukebox is playing music, not just a video of one, or an app that plays music, etc.
#403: Take a picture of your entire team showing off their muscles after each racer has applied a temporary tattoo to one of their arms. Each racer should have a store bought temporary tattoo applied to at least one arm, and not just something that was drawn or taped on.

#407: Take a picture of your team, or a combination of your team and as many strangers needed in order to have 5 total people taking a bite of one slice of pizza. Each of the 5 individuals should be biting somewhere around the edge of the slice (so you may need to get cozy with one another), and your hands should not be touching or supporting the pizza (aka the slice is being held up only with everyone's mouths/teeth). You may want to take the picture from slightly above the group so our HQ can verify everyone has their mouths on it.
#408: Take a video of your team all lined up shoulder to shoulder and getting sprayed by a garden hose or a water gun for a full 9-second video. Each team member should be getting sprayed at some point so be sure to spread the love and make it a full 9-second soaking.
