The Urban Adventure Run is back! Explore Boston on foot, following a map to answer clues. There will be a "short", "medium", and "long" distance event. Street running shoes would be the footwear of choice. The clues are not designed to be tricky, just interesting factoids about wherever it is we've sent you!

Final stats have been updated in the table below. There are no difficulty differences in the courses other than length. The length is the shortest runnable distance. There will be delicious edible prizes!

The event will be a mass start at 10am on Saturday, May 17. The start is at Boston Common, at the band stand in the middle of the park. You can park at the underground lot (access from the west side of Boston Common), or take public transportation to get there.

See you there! (don't worry about the entry deadline thing... just bring yourself). Since the weather calls for some rain, you may want a rain jacket; we will have a pop-up tent at the start/finish location where you can leave your bags.
