The ArtPrize Edition - September 27

Part bike race, part running race and part Amazing Race, the ArtPrize Edition is to our knowledge the only sporting event that incorporates a world-class art festival. Two-person teams will bike or run to checkpoints pre-marked on a map, collecting as many points as they can within four hours. They’ll encounter Amazing Race-like challenges, many involving some aspect of art and ArtPrize, in popular downtown exhibits as well as out-of-the-way venues.

Watch this video to see how it works.
