This is YOUR race; do it YOUR way.

We're proud to introduce our newest and most fun race to date: the Urban Springs Adventure on June 14th! It is an urban adventure race featuring our beautiful city of Colorado Springs that allows anyone of any skill level to get out and have some serious fun. This event is hosted in coordination with the 37th annual Springs Spree Celebration in Memorial Park.

The objective: earn points by getting to as many of the destinations and completing as many of the challenges on the course as possible. Winners will be those who have earned the most amount of points. You will have your choice of destinations, special challenges, and scavenger hunts around town and possibly in the woods on foot and/or on bike. You may even walk away with some Colorado Springs souveniers! If you're seasoned racer, don't worry, we also have a more challenging course for you. The event will conclude with a fun paddling challenge on Prospect Lake with paddling gear provided.

We want everyone to join us for this event. Seriously - ask your children (kids 9 and under are free!); ask your wife; ask your lazy friends. They can choose what they do and don't want to do - how far to go or how close to stay. No special gear is required (you will need a smartphone and an ID) and no particular skills are necessary. We'd recommend putting a team together as you will have more fun, but you are welcome to do the race by yourself as well. You may register any team size or composition.

See you out there in June 14th!
