The Great Dayton Adventure Race

The fourth annual Great Dayton Adventure Race returns to the DP&L Summer in the City lineup Friday, June 1, from 5 to 9 p.m.

The Adventure Race is a fast-paced scavenger hunt in and around downtown Dayton and will take you to all corners of the downtown area. You're sure to discover new things about our city! Team up with friends or tackle the challenge solo then check out all downtown Dayton has to offer.

Racers will navigate the city with a map, hunting for clues and completing challenges in this action-packed adventure. The teams that return the most accurate answer sheets in the shortest amount of time are the winners!

Assemble your team of 1-4 people, and choose whether you’d like to race for cash in the competitive division, or enjoy a more relaxed pace in the non-competitive division. First place in the competitive division takes home $250 in cash! Second and third get $150 and $100, respectively. Non-competitive racers will be eligible for raffle prizes drawn at random.

Teams can start anytime during the 2-hour window of 5-7 p.m. Registration and race start will take place just east of the Trolley Stop (530 E. Fifth St.) in the Oregon District.
