UrbaCity Challenge

The UrbaCity Challenge is Victoria’s own urban adventure race! Teams compete in a free-form course, deciding their own route and completing unique challenges as they go. Heritage buildings and boutique shops are the backdrop for amazing feats of physical prowess and mental agility.

No one knows just what the challenges will be, and time is limited, so racers have to be quick on their feet in more ways than one.

All fundraising pledges go directly to Victoria’s own Island Prostate Centre.

Event Dates: Sunday, September 24, 2017
