Third Annual Quest for the Queen Race Set for May 14

Cincinnati’s premier adventure race invites community to re-discover city

CINCINNATI – The Quest For the Queen race will return for its third year on May 14, inviting participants to re-discover the city by visiting new neighborhoods and businesses and learning new things about the history and character of Cincinnati.

To win the quest, teams of two will use brain-teasing riddles combined with their knowledge of Cincinnati’s geography to go on an exhilarating physical adventure that will take them to checkpoints, as they race throughout our celebrated city on a mission to find notable sights, landmarks or businesses.

To encourage engagement with the community, the thrilling adventure prohibits the use of cell phones or electronic devices to answer the riddles or find locations. Teams are urged to travel by foot and bike. They are also required to take the Metro for at least one leg of their trip.

The cost of participation is $60 per team and participants will receive dinner, prizes, bus passes and T-shirts. Visit for more info and to register.
