Teams of 2 can register to compete against other teams to decode clues, which lead to various locations around San Diego and complete challenges. The twist? Competitors are not allowed to use their voice! The entire race must be completed using American Sign Language (ASL). The team that chooses the shortest path and completes all the challenges in the fastest time will win a cash prize!

Proceeds from this event will go toward SD ASLTA's future community-wide events which perserve, promote and celebrate ASL and Deaf Culture among individuals, in schools, and in communitites.

What You Get:

Q: What if our team can't find the checkpoint?
