Race through the city on the Salomon/GearJunkie ‘CITYTRAIL’ course. This video, shot and edited by Erik Nelson, reveals the mental and physical challenges racers found along the “choose-your-adventure” open course.
The event, held last week in Minneapolis from GearJunkie.com HQ, was a part of Salomon’s CityTrail series, which pushes urban runners to get off the pavement and beaten track in search of adventure in the city.

During the event, racers tracked their route and hit checkpoints on a 90-minute course, using cluesheets, a race manifest and Salomon’s CityTrail app. The app provides routes, waypoints, and guides to city running experiences.
