The Urban-X is “Seattle’s Great Scavenger Race” that combines eXploring and eXperiencing Seattle’s iconic destinations. This unique team run / walk combines smart phone technology, street navigation, social media, team problem-solving and a great post party. This is not a road race, it’s an out-of-the-box and fun experience that you can’t duplicate anywhere else. The teams will complete a series of check points, ultimately completing the challenge together. Along the way, they will experience Seattle sports and culture, pass fun tests, and a few surprises.

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.
Seattle Urban Trek offers a complimentary Bag Check for runners on the day of the race. We recommend that you use the Children’s Hospital bag you’ll get at packet pickup. Alternatively, you can 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 8:00am at “Bag Check.” They will be moved to the finish and available for pickup starting at 10:30am. 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. Seattle Urban Trek/Seattle Sports Commission/Seattle Mariners/Pyramid Alehouse are not responsible for the loss, theft or damage of items placed in gear bags. Runners who check their bags will do so at their own risk.
