How it works


Everyone starts equally clueless

The anticipation is killing you and you haven't even received your clues yet. But before each team receives its clue packet (10 clues and 2 bonus questions), CitySolve Urban Race will literally unveil the First Clue. The First Clue asks a simple multiple choice question and provides 4 potential answers. Each of the answers has a different street intersection. The correct intersection will have CitySolve Urban Race staff. It is here where each team will receive their clue packet.

Now that you have your clues, you and your team must solve 9 out of 10 clues (the bonus questions are optional and can only help your time). You are allowed to skip 1 clue. Some clues are labeled Mandatory and therefore cannot be skipped.

Once you've solved 9 clues, head to the finish line where to each team will have their camera checked so they can see their sweet success.
