Asheville Urban Odyssey – September 23, 2018 – Asheville NC

The big adventure part of the Asheville Running Experience.


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 One World Brewing – 10 Patton Ave- 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 APB for their final challenge. The completion of the final challenge will constitute the finish time.

The use of smart phones 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.

Race Cap

There is a team race cap of 16 teams.
