October 20, 2018, Saturday - The Fast & The Curious: Northeast Drift at Able Seedhouse & Brewery

Time: 9 AM – 1 PM

Location: Able Seedhouse & Brewery, 1121 Quincy Street NE

The Fast & The Curious: Northeast Drift

Mill City Running, Saucony and Able Seedhouse & Brewery present The Fast & The Curious: Northeast Drift, the third edition of our 2.5-hour mad dash through Minneapolis streets on a (scavenger) hunt for glory. Strategize your route, decipher clues, perform challenges & rack up points as you & your partner race through city streets - all on foot. This year we're drifting east - Northeast! We're excited to call Able Seedhouse & Brewery home base for 2018.

How it works:
Each team consists of two people. You may register with a teammate OR as an individual and we will match you up with a teammate (according to desired pace). At exactly 9:30am each team will be given a list of clues & challenges and will have until 12 noon to complete as many as possible and return to Able. In it to win it? Your team will need smarts, stamina AND spunk.

Prizes: We will be giving away amazing prizes throughout the event, including Saucony running shoes for the winning teams, Nathan gear to runners-up, MCR-branded swag for best team costumes, and tons of give-aways from our event sponsors!

Race Swag: Each participant will receive a swag bag filled with goodies from our race partners, a supersoft Fast & Curious triblend tee, and a token for one free post-race drink at Able.

Registration: You may register individually or as a team of two. Registration is $40/person through Oct 1, then price raises to $45/person through October 19.

Must Be 21 to Participate All participants in this event must be 21 years of age and provide an ID at check-in.

Field Limit The field is limited to 100 participants (50 teams).
