Sactown Urban Dash 2017

  • State Capitol Capitol Avenue Sacramento, CA United States (map)

The Active 20-30 Club of Greater Sacramento #1032 continues to serve local childrens charities by asking supporters to come out for our 2nd Annual Sactown Urban Dash,.

This scavenger race is similar to an Amazing Race through downtown Sacramento. Teams will solve clues on foot that will lead them to different challenges. Challenges may range from taking a team picture at a location to solving a specific answer to a question as you navigate your way through Sacramento with family and friends!

Race - 1:00pm to 2:30pm

After Party - 2:30pm to 4:30pm


Our theme this year is: Explore. Race. Give!
