Due to COVID-19 we have made the difficult decision not to hold this event in 2020.
We will make a decision about the future of the race in early 2021.
The Asheville Urban Odyssey is the most fun scavenger hunt you will ever do and a perfect representation of Asheville.
Teams of four will leave from “Base Camp” (TBD) every ten minutes beginning at 12 noon and follow a series of clues to both obscure and well known Asheville locations.
At each location, a team member must complete a specific task before receiving their next clue (each team member will need to complete two tasks). After a team completes its eighth task they will make their way back to Base Camp for their final challenge. The completion of the final challenge will constitute the finish time.
The use of smartphones to solve clues is not only allowed but highly encouraged.
Teams can phone a friend or ask passersby for assistance.
The only rule is you follow traffic laws along the route.
Online registration is now open and closes on Saturday, September 19 at 12:0o Noon.
There is a team race cap of 20 teams.
The event will include all of the downtown Asheville and teams can expect to walk between 3 and 5 miles during their journey. Teams must follow all traffic regulations and those who don’t will be penalized (we will have spies all over the course).
