CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building returned to the great city of the north, Minneapolis and boy they had a better time than eating a hot dish in February! It also happened to be Pride weekend in Minneapolis and the most beautiful day in recent memory of CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building.

CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building could not have pulled off this event without the wonderful staff and volunteers from One2One. One2One is a mentorship program that helps youth who are struggling in their school environment. One2One mentors spend a minimum of one hour each week with their mentee for the entire school year. One2One really makes an impact, but it needs your help. For more information, please contact Katie Maldeis at 952.250.8859 or Katie@one2onementor.org.

Once all the Minneapolis Amazing Race enthusiasts solved the first clue and picked up their packets for the day that’s when everything got interesting. Teams had to navigate downtown and uptown via bus! A good handful of Minneapolis scavenger hunt lovers had never set foot on public the bus, so CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building was an education in getting around town via government subsides.

Most of the action took place in the Uptown section of Minneapolis. One of the favorite activities was making balloon animals at Tintos! What more can CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building say! F-U-N…fun, fun, fun!

From Mexican then onto the froyo fabulousness of Yogurt Lab of Uptown (they have the coolest topping bar set up) where teams were rewarded by playing a Minute to Win It game where these Minneapolis scavenger hunt sleuths had to pass M&Ms via straws sans hands. The fun continues!

CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building’s good friend at the Phoenix Theater had a classic improv game where Minneapolis Amazing Race fiends really had to use their brain at this checkpoint. This was the most fun spelling activity anyone could do sober!

Magers and Quinn Book Sellers had the ultimate in-store scavenger hunt! CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building delivered the five hints in their classic pop-culture style. Where else but a CitySolve Urban Race and Minneapolis Team Building activity would you find Aziz Ansari’s latest, one of the Harry Potters, Chronicles of Narnia (the shebang), the classic David Copperfield, and True Grit!

We will be back in next June, so grab your friends, your killer costume and prepare for an even greater adventure!

CitySolve Urban Race and Rochester Team Building returned to the Flower City for the 10th straight year! Yes, a decade of this unique Rochester Amazing Race. CitySolve Urban Race and Rochester Team Building cannot wait to see what the next 10 years have in store!

Sneaky Feet, comprised of Mark Schuber and Dudley Loew, edged out the veterans Michael Rhoda and Adrienne Dykeman (CitySolve believes that it was Michael and Andrienne’s fifth or sixth time – WTG!).

What better way to act like a kid again than conquering inflatables! What’s that, you ask! It’s F-U-N, fun, fun, fun! The Rochester amazing race enthusiasts slide their way through this exhilarating course. We’d like to thank our good friends at Dyno-Bounce!

The tastiest checkpoint went to Hedonist Artisan Ice Cream. When Rochester scavenger hunt lovers made it to this checkpoint they were rewarded with delicious chocolate truffles. The staff at CitySolve Urban Race and Rochester Team Building can taste the in-house made chocolate…mmmmmmm!

Not to be out done, GoFlingo set up camp at Publik House on Park Ave where Rochester amazing race enthusiasts played a game that could potentially alter the final standing! Rochester scavenger hunt fiends played a quick game of cornhole. Skilled and lucky teams could walk away with up to 5-minutes off their race time. The excitement builds.

One of the more trickier clues lead teams to Moe’s…not the Havana one, but the Southwest / Mexican one. Both Moe’s are directly across the street from each other… CitySolve Urban Race and Rochester Team Building is a tricky bunch. Once there teams got to play a silly Minute to Win It game. Teams had to pass M&Ms to their teammates without using their hands and only using straws. A special thanks to Big Brothers Big Sister of Rochester for helping facilitate this fun activity.

CitySolve Urban Race and Rochester Team Building could not have pulled off this fun Rochester amazing race without the help of Big Brothers Big Sister of Rochester. We look forward to working with them in 2016 and seeing more matches at CitySolve Urban Race and Rochester Team Building.

We’ll release the 2016 Rochester date around Thanksgiving, until then you’ll just have to sit tight or buy a plane ticket to Minneapolis, Denver, Seattle, San Antonio or Honolulu.

CitySolve Urban Race and Atlanta Team Building was better than an Atlanta Hawks home game (well, almost! Go Hawks!) and speaking of playing together on a team, CitySolve Urban Race and Atlanta Team Building could not have done this event without Greening Youth Foundation.

At Piedmont Park – behind Park Tavern, to be exact – Atlanta Sport & Social Club hosted one of CitySolve Urban Race and Atlanta Team Building’s all time favorite games: cornhole (what a funny name). CitySolve’s Atlanta amazing race enthusiasts absolutely loved Atlanta Sport & Social Club’s cornhole game!

CitySolve Urban Race and Atlanta Team Building would like to give a special thanks to the incredible The Brink Improv troupe. Stationed at Piedmont Park, The Brink Improv played a classic improve game called The Spelling Game.

Who let the dogs out? Café Angora, of course. No, for realies. Greening Youth Foundation staffed this delectable Midtown Mediterranean restaurant (it’s a can’t-miss-must-go!). Once the Atlanta amazing race enthusiasts arrived they were given the task of making a balloon animal, a dog specifically.

CitySolve Urban Race and Team Building cannot wait to return to the Peach State in 2016! We’ll announce the date of CitySolve Urban Race and Atlanta Team Building before Thanksgiving.

CitySolve Urban Race and Houston Team Building Recap

Rain, rain go away and it did! Not a single drop to be had for CitySolve Urban Race and Houston Team Building. The nearly 200 CitySolvers were delighted to see sunny blue skies reign over Houston.

Only four seconds separated the top two teams. Yeah, it was that close…until the bonus clues came into play. Then This Is Happening! took sole possession of 2015 CitySolve Urban Race and Houston Team Building of first place and repeated as champs. Will they three-peat? Sign up and beat ‘em!

Thanks to Houston Sport & SocialClub, teams had a blast playing Flip Cup at Lucky Strike. Houston Sport & Social Club hosted the time honored frat house game – CitySolve made it kid friendly removing the booze from the cups. CitySolve can’t wait to see what Houston Sport & Social Club will come up with at next year’s CitySolve Urban Race and Houston Team Building.

Not to be out done, Christian’s Tailgate in Midtown hosted the comedic fun of Comedy Sportz Houston. Teams got to play a classic improve game known as The ABC Game. Google it or better yet, have your office hire CitySolve Houston Team Building and you can learn and play it first hand. It’s tons of fun! We promise.

CitySolve Urban Race and Houston Team Building would like to thank HEART Houston for supplying the wonderful volunteers for the day and for hosting a fun game at Root Square Park! There is no way CitySolve Urban Race and Houston Team Building could have pulled this event off without the tremendous efforts of this fabulous charity. Keep up the great work Jane Cummings! Go HEART Houston!

CitySolve Urban Race and Houston Team Building will return to Houston in April of 2016. Look for the date around October or November. We can’t wait to come back! Yeeha!

CitySolve Urban Race and Philadelphia Team Building Recap
Wait, what!?! reigned supreme once again winning! Great job boys! They’ll try to defend their CitySolve Urban Race Philly title next April. Who’s gonna take them down? Rocky?

CitySolve Urban Race and Philadelphia Team Building would like to thank Whole Foods for its participation as a fun interactive checkpoint. Teams had to bounce a ping pong ball onto a piece of bread covered – to honor the Philadelphia Beekeepers Guild – at the fair trade supermarket. Miss it on the first round and you’d get bees unleashed on you…jk…you’d get another round of attempts.

A lot of those CitySolve cats were fast as lighting and they were a little bit frightening when they entered the Martial Posture dojo. Remember, there is no pain in this dojo. Teams had to memorize an aikido fighting routine. It’s tougher than it sounds.

Not to be forgotten during the CitySolve Urban Race and Philadelphia Team Building is the Whirled Peace Frozen Yogurt checkpoint. Teams played a fun Minute to Win it game where they had to move M&Ms from one end of the store to the other just using straws, oh, and they had to pass it onto another teammate all while using straws. Good luck Chuck!

CitySolve Urban Race and Philly Team Building would again like to thank Whole Foods who helped raise over $7,000 for Philadelphia Beekeepers Guild. Three cheers for Whole Foods!!!

We can’t wait to return to Philadelphia in 2016. We’re certain to be at Field House next year. Thanks again for making CitySolve Urban Race and Philadelphia Team Building part of your Saturday.
