Intro to the Race


You are invited to experience the most unique and adventurous race in Topeka!

Join us Saturday, August 24 for the 9th annual Downtown Adventure Race Topeka (DART), a benefit for Let’s Help, the non-profit working to break the cycle of poverty and promote self-sufficiency since 1969.

The DART is a fun and exciting, local event based on the TV show The Amazing Race where participants solve logic puzzles and compete in physical activities. This foot race takes place in Downtown Topeka, Saturday August 24, 2019 (8:00 a.m. DART; 9:00 a.m. DARTini) and includes the area from the Kansas River to 12th Street and from Topeka Boulevard to Adams.
