Additional Information

This is currently a proposed date and site. Permitting is not assured.

The goal of Urban Discovery is to maximize your score within a set time limit by visiting mapped control locations. Each location is worth a different point value based on difficulty and distance. Instead of punching physical controls, you answer simple multiple choice questions based on interesting city features that are visible at the control locations.

The Belmont Shores neighborhood is fairly flat and includes residential, commercial, and beach areas.

We will have a mass start at 10:00am. Participants are welcome to start late, but may not be allowed the full time limit.

The following standard LAOC protocols will be in place at this event:

  • Please pre-register. $10 additional fee per person for on-site registration dependent on map availability.

  • Distributed posters with detailed race information instead of a large gathering for announcements.

  • Bring your own water and snacks. No water will be placed on the course. We will have water available at the assembly area.

  • Please take advantage of our online beginner training. If you need additional training or have questions, let us know when you arrive. On-site training will depend on volunteer availability.

  • Please do not attend if you are sick.

Liability Waiver - Everyone must have a waiver on file. The registration system gives you an opportunity to accept the waiver for yourself or your family members. Minors whose registration is not handled by a parent/guardian must print out the form and bring it with them with a parent/guardian signature.

Registration and Pricing

Registration will open closer to the event and will close on Thursday, July 4 at midnight.

Standard LAOC fees:

  • Adult $13

  • Youth (20 and under) $10

  • Member discount $5

  • Children under 10 free (one free child per paying adult, additional children at the youth rate)

Prepayment is required and is the only way to pay with a credit card. The online preregistration system uses Paypal as the payment portal. Our permit does not allow us to collect any payments on site.
