For the first time since its inception in 2009 CitySolve Urban Race and Seattle Team Building was not in the shadows of the CenturyLink Field. Moving from Pioneer Square to South Lake Union and making Whole Foods Market our new home. We can’t wait to return to the healthy grocer next year.

The day started gray and overcast, but it seemed that Champagne Sunday chased the clouds away by playing virtually all day in conjunction with CitySolve Urban Race and Seattle Team Building at Whole Foods Market! We hope Jessi and Jared are there to play their fun pop originals and covers! Thanks gang!

A special shout out to the hip hop divas (pictured above) for their fly dress and smooth dance moves! They took home two incredible Jammy Packs. Now they can rock out with their pack out! WORD! Buy one today!

Our funny and energetic friends from Jet City Improv introduced CitySolve Urban Race and Seattle Team Building camped out (branded tent and all) at Denny Park. Teams battled each other or a seasoned improv player in the hilarious game of What Am I Doing?! The Seattle Amazing Race enthusiasts had an unbelievable time laughing and improving! Thanks again Jet City Improv!!!

Not to be outdone, Menchies in Capitol Hill joined in the Seattle scavenger hunt fun when it hosted a classic Minute to Win It game! PHEW! What a blast! Thank Alfredo for being a part of our Seattle amazing race!

We would also like thank our sponsor Alarm Monitoring in Phoenix.

Keep runnin’ runnin’ and runnin’ runnin’


Three apps that can prepare you in your next run
Whether it’s your first time running a 10k race or your 10th time, these apps will help you become better through preparing the correct way. By the time the actual race comes around, you’ll be able to cross the finish line faster and feel better physically, as long as you incorporate the lessons and tips given by each app to your training regimen.

Couch to 5K
This nice little app from can make your running life easier as it trains you how to prepare for runs that as far as 3 miles. It has 5 different audio coaches to choose from that will carefully guide you through each workout. It also tracks your pace, routes, and distance, so you can always monitor your progress. This app is great for beginners who want to build their stamina so they can last longer during races such as the CitySolve Urban Race challenge.

The app uses the phone’s GPS function in order to track a user’s distance. If this feature isn’t very important to your training, you can turn it off as it drains a lot of battery fast. If you have an old phone, one of the writers of the entertainment hub Pocket Fruity suggests that you rely on WiFi in order to save battery while using the app. Unless, of course, you keep an external battery in your pocket whenever you run – which is highly unlikely.

Those who have ample experience when it comes to running can rely CardioTrainer to track their workouts and weekly schedules. As the name suggests, the app focuses on cardio exercises to help people last longer when running. One of the best things about this app is that with each workout, users can earn “energy points” that can be used to unlock games within the app. The fitter the users get, the more features they can unlock.

Ghost Race
Don’t worry! Ghost Race isn’t some sort of Halloween-themed app that will scare you out of your skin. Ghost refers to the term used by video games to refer to a user’s personal record. Ghost race allows runners to pick a distance that they’d like to run over and over again until they can beat their personal best. It lets users compare daily performances, as well as get audio cues alerting them of their current progress.

CitySolve Urban Race and Denver Team Building was more exciting than a John El…, er, Peyton Manning game winning drive (maybe preseason). Regardless, the nearly 200 Denver amazing race enthusiasts had a ball solving great puzzles and taking on exciting challenges.

We could not have pulled off this event without the help of the Rocky Mountain Rollergirls. Thanks ladies! The Rocky Mountain Rollergirls run an incredible community program where they empower women and instill confidence through flat track rollerskating.

The people of Orange Theory got a chance to whip CitySolve Urban Race and Team Building enthusiasts into shape! At this fitness challenge, teams ran, rowed and squatted their way through this all out sprint of a checkpoint. Move it! Move it! Awesome!

One checkpoint that our Denver scavenger hunt fans could not stop talking about was Voodoo Comedy Playhouse. Improv comedy lovers rejoice! Our Denver amazing race fanatics played a classic collaborative improv game! Thanks for making CitySolve Urban Race and Denver team building more fun!

Next up was Laundry on Lawrence. In order to find this Denver co-working space Denver scavenger hunt aficionados first had to solve a limerick. Remember, a limerick first, second and fifth lines rhyme! Once CitySolve Urban Race and Denver Team Building lovers found their way to the ultra cool workspace teams played the frat boy classic beer pong sans the beer (CitySolve Urban Race and Denver Team Building is kid friendly).

CitySolve Urban Race and Team Building Denver cannot wait to return to Stoney’s Bar & Grill. You can count on our 2016 Denver scavenger hunt to be better than this year! Woohoo! See you next year!
