The Great Dayton Adventure Race

NEW in 2019 We've moved the event to Saturday afternoon from 2 - 6 p.m. 

Registration and race start will take place on Fifth Street in the Oregon District between Jackson and Pine streets.

The fifth annual Great Dayton Adventure Race returns to the DP&L Summer in the City lineup 

Pull your teammates together for a fun adventure around downtown Dayton! Teams will receive a clue sheet and must find hidden clues, solve puzzles, or complete games or tasks at each location. ALL teams are eligible to win raffle prizes, including merchandise and gift cards to downtown businesses. The competitive teams that turn in the most accurately filled-out clue sheet completed in the shortest amount of time will be eligible to win a bonus cash prize. 

**UPDATE** There are FOUR WAYS participants can help those impacted by the tornados:

  • 20% of the proceeds collected from the race registrations will be donated to disaster relief efforts. You get to run the race, enjoy the experience, and still know you’re contributing to a great cause.
  • Bring a canned good, bottles of water, or other nonperishable items to the Oregon District Street Party. We’ll have a barrel from The Foodbank to collect those items.
  • The Dayton Foundation will have information about their disaster relief fund, and donation envelopes for those who wish to make a monetary contribution. (Get this information at the registration/information table.)
  • After the race, patronize a downtown business. Support small businesses and the hundreds of employees who rely on guests for their livelihoods. Help them bounce back!
