Event Details

Urban Adventure Race
to benefit Spark-Y

Grab your friends for a day of adventure, exploration, prizes, and partying with a race unlike any other.

Work as a team to solve clues and take on challenges in a race across Uptown, Minneapolis.  That’s right. CitySolve national race event is back in the Twin Cities and you don’t want to miss this memorable whirlwind event.

Teambuilding? You bet.

Smarts? Yeah, you’re going to need more than muscle for these challenges.

Adventure? That’s right. Get ready to uncover iconic Uptown’s hidden gems on foot or bus.

Oh, and did we mention? You’re racing to benefit a local nonprofit, Spark-Y.

 Urban race in Uptown

Saturday, August 5th, race start 11:00AM

Address: 2937 Lyndale Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55408

Address: 4432 Chicago Ave. S. Minneapolis, MN 55407.  


Length: 3.5 - 4.5 hours depending on your speed. Awards begin at 3pm.

Team Registration: This race is all about team building. Teams of 2-4 people register together. Unify your team with themed costumes (we hear a team chant is also a good way to build morale).

Want more? We have an after party! Friends and family that want to congratulate your adventure can come hang out with us following the event, in support of a good cause. Race participants gain After Party admittance with their race ticket.





So you’ve caught the thrill of adventure? It gets better:

Solve Clues. Imagine a scavenger hunt, trivia night and Amazing Race all rolled into one. You and your team must solve clues to unlock and map out race checkpoints. You’ll need more than Google for these head-scratchers.

Race. Strap on your sneakers or jump on the nearest bus line. Racers are welcome to jump from checkpoint challenges by public transport or on foot.

Celebrate. Win prizes for fastest time, cleverest costume, or best photo. Recount all the hilarity and fun as we kick up our feet at the After Party.


Your ticket purchase will go to support a local nonprofit, Spark-Y.  

CitySolve chose this organization for their mission of youth empowerment through hands-on education rooted in sustainability and entrepreneurship. This year’s race adds a dash of eco-consciousness into the mix, in support of a greener Twin Cities.
