Downtown Chicago Adventure Race routes

The format of the course is a Score-O where participants go to as many control locations as they have time to collect correct answers for during the time period of the race. Racers can select either a 1-hour (Short), 2-hour (Medium) or 4-hour (Long) time limit. Each correct answer collected will be scored as one point and each minute late in returning to the start/finish will subtract a point.

Racers may participate on foot or on a bicycle, and may ride public transportation (bus or train) or water taxis, but may not take any private motorized vehicle (car, taxi, etc.). Racers must follow all traffic laws and safety rules. Helmets are required for bikers. Some control locations are at or near water fountains, but you may prefer to carry water.
