Race Info


Please join us for the 10th annual Urban Adventure Game

The Urban Adventure Games is a zany, action-packed, cit(ies)-wide scavenger hunt. Participants pair up in teams of two to embark on this secret “scavenger hunt on steroids”. Participants’ mind and body are challenged as they utilize streets, waterways, bike paths, and even some “top secret” modes of transportation – all while solving clues helping them to move throughout the race. Name of the game is to make it to all checkpoints and complete all tasks in the least amount of time. With three levels of competition, participants can make the day as challenging or as fun as they want! Prizes are awarded to the top three teams in each category, in each division.
You’ll also want to join us for the after party from 12pm – 2pm! The party is where you get to have fun and relax after your strenuous day of adventure. You won’t want to miss the awards ceremony and complimentary food and beverages.
Early bird registration from March 5, 2018 through May 13, 2018. $10 off per person for 10 weeks for our 10th race!

  1. Teams of two are given a secret map of checkpoints that can be completed in any order to be considered for 1st, 2nd or 3rd in any race division.
  2. City streets ARE NOT blocked off, so racers must follow all traffic laws, signage and traffic lights. Disqualification will be immediate if disobeying any local or state traffic law
  3. Racers MUST mark their bikes so that they are identifiable as your own. The penalty for taking another racer’s bike is disqualification.
  4. Teammates must check in together at each checkpoint, and if a checkpoint’s challenge requires both participants to complete a challenge, both must do so in order to receive credit for the checkpoint.
  5. Maps must be carried the entire race. Teams will only be issued one map so do not lose it.
  6. Race bibs must be worn on the outside of clothing at all times, except while rafting or on inflatable attractions.
  7. Racers are responsible for ensuring that your bar code is scanned at each checkpoint that you complete.
  8. Bicycle helmets are required at all times while on a bicycle and when specifically directed by race officials.
  9. Racers must follow Rules of Travel as outlined in Course Instructions. Where no specific path is designated, teams select their path between check points. When instructions designate a specific route, teams must follow that path.
  10. Any team withdrawing from the race must notify a UAG Volunteer at a checkpoint or a UAG staff/committee member . Failing to notify race officials will result in that team being responsible for all search and rescue expenses.
