MINNEAPOLIS - Students were running helter skelter around the University of Minnesota campus Friday afternoon, testing themselves with physical and mental challenges.
As part of the Gopher Adventure Race, teams of two traveled across all of the U of M's Twin Cities campuses by foot or campus transportation to decipher clues.
The event is the first step in the U of M's effort to earn a "green certification" from FitPlanet.
A portion of the race fees will be donated to Forests Forever, a program of Three Rivers Park District, for creating and maintaining critical habitats.
