Urban-X, Seattle’s Great Scavenger Race, challenges teams to eXplore & eXperience the city through a series of unique checkpoints. Race “the clock” or walk your way through downtown while completing a series of out-of-the-box challenges before crossing the Finish Line & celebrating your success at the After Party Beer Garden.
This is not a road race, Urban-X is an adventure race/scavenger hunt hybrid that utilizes both analog & digital elements, & puts your teamwork to the test.
The course will cover 4 – 6 miles across the heart of downtown Seattle. Teams can run or walk the course. Bikes, roller blades/skates and motorized vehicles are not permitted.
Teams consist of 3 or 4 people. All members must be 21-years or older.

It is permissible to switch a team member if needed. Please make sure to register your new person via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to optimize your team for the best experience, we suggest coming prepared with these items:
Adventure racing is a challenging sport. Teamwork and good sportsmanship are integral parts of making it a safe event.
Pay attention to the needs of your teammates and other teams. If someone needs help, stop and help them.
Don’t enter the race if you haven’t trained and are not physically prepared.
Race at the pace you trained for and not the pace of your strongest team member. THIS IS A TEAM SPORT.
Urban-X offers a complimentary Bag Check for runners on the day of the race. We recommend that you bring a personal bag that is 12” x 18” or smaller. We will provide bag tags the day of the race. You must show your race number and ID to retrieve it after the race.
Bags must be dropped off by 8:30am at “Bag Check.” They will be moved to the finish and available for pickup starting at 10:00am. Bags not picked up by 1:00pm will be taken to the Seattle Sports Commission offices for storage. If you have not contacted us (206-461-5865) to retrieve your bag within two weeks, the contents will be donated to a local charity.
Please do not put irreplaceable items or valuables such as wedding rings, cell phones, I.D., wallets or cameras in your bag.
