Urban Adventure through the streets of Rochester

By Tony:

Logo_sm An urban adventure race made a stop in Rochester this past May.  The High Trek Adventure race series is similar to the "Amazing Race" TV show and is staged in major cities across the country such as L.A., San Francisco, Chicago, Boston, NYC and over 20 others.

The race, described as "brains beat brawn", involves a team of 2 people solving 12 clues while running around the downtown Rochester landscape on a beautiful sunny day.

The clues led teams to many landmarks and districts across more than 6 miles of the city (on foot!).  Some notable spots included the Susan B. Anthony park(pictured below left), the High Falls district (pictured below right) with the start/finish line located in the popular East End district.

It was an exciting afternoon that continued after the race with all the teams and spectators meeting to share different stories and strategies.
