Urban Adventure Run 

Starts: Sunday, May 17, 2015 11:00 AM
Registration:  Pre-registration is optional, but requested (so we know how many maps to print) by Sunday, May 17, 2015 11:00 AM
Start Type: Mass start (all runners start together)
Map: TBA
Organizer: Larry Berman

The 3rd Annual CSU Urban Adventure Run will happen on May 17, 2015.

Urban adventure through the streets of Cambridge, Somerville and Boston. You will run to places you probably have never been before, and probably never would. They are marked on a high-quality street map given to you at the start, and you must decide which way to go between points. At each point, you will figure out the answer to a question about an interesting (or perhaps trivial) fact about that place.

There will be 4 course lengths: 5 km, 10 km, 15 km and 20 km. The distances are "as the crow flies", so, unless you are a crow, your actual running distance will be 10% to 20% longer. It can be a short Sunday morning run, or your last long run before the VT City Marathon.

Start time 11 am; late arrivals will be accommodated.

Entry fee: $10. Includes a cookout after you finish.

Location: 23 Fayette St, Cambridge MA 02139 (Lat 42.372317, Lon 71.103668)

Please enter by May 14, so we can have a high-quality map for you; later entries may get a lower-quality inkjet version.
