    Hi Lori, Noticed that Expedition Everest 5K will be on the night we arrive. This looks like a great race but was wondering about the clues section of the race. As this will be our first visit to WDW, will the clues be hard to solve for a newbie?

    Hi Dawn!  The Expedition Everest Challenge is a really fun 5K, obstacle course, and scavenger hunt!  It's a great race for families.

    The clues are more like puzzles, and it won't matter that it's your first trip to Disney World.  You may want to study a map of Animal Kingdom before the race just to get familiar with where you will be running, as it does lead you to different "lands" inside the park.  If you "Google" the phrase "expedition everest clues" it will bring up some blogs and posts by people who have run it before.  They even have photos of past clues.  You can also ask a cast member during the race if you need some help! 

    Just keep in mind that you will need to get to the Wide World of Sports by 4 p.m. on that Saturday to pick up your race packet and information.  You can find the schedule of all events on the Expedition Everest Challenge website.

    Please let me know if you have any other questions!
