TC Urban Dash

A fun adventure race around the North Loop in Minneapolis!

Thanks for joining us in 2015!

We hope you enjoyed your race!

Race Features:
  • While it is a race, you're running to collect points! You (and your team) map your route and decide whether you walk, run, or jog from one stop to the next.

  • Switch up your summer with a challenging race off the beaten path! Combine your physical race with a cross-training/mental set of challenges. Plus, you create your own route! (Don't forget to plan your optimal tangents.)

  • For double-the-fun, pair up with a significant other! Team up with another couple and work together, or be on separate teams to make it acompetitive double date, or a race to see who's best of the best.

  • Grab family, friends, bridal party, co-workers, neighbors, etc. and split into teams of 2, 3, or 4!

  • Take on the clues and checkpoints yourself to test your skills and speed. Come meet new friends or get competitive and take on your friends one-on-one.

  • Run through the North Loop in this adventure-style race that explores several areas of interest in this up-and-coming Minneapolis neighborhood! Don't forget about the ticket into the third annual North Loop Fest that comes free with your registration!

Run Minneapolis like you never have before.

Race down urban streets. Decipher clues and perform stunts. Find hidden checkpoints. The TC Urban Dash balances physical activity with a mental component where you must decipher puzzles, sprint on urban trails, and complete a cluesheet to make it to the finish.

Twin Cities In Motion and GearJunkie, along with FITSOK, invite you to run the North Loop neighborhood of Minneapolis in a way you never have... as part of an urban adventure race. Compete as an individual or team up with a friend or three and run through the city, putting your physical and mental skills to the test!


Make it back to the start by 4:30 p.m. and stay for the Post Race Party at the North Loop Fest. First, second, and third place in all categories will be awarded prizes!


An anticipated highlight of the TC Urban Dash is the participant raffle, plus, a 100-FITSOK Sock and 25-GU pack toss following the event. Join us for a night of prizes for everyone -- over 150 giveaways and the list is still growing!
