Held on March 9, the New Orleans leg of the CitySolve Urban Race sets packs of competitors loose through the city on an adult scavenger hunt. The competition begins at noon at The Bulldog, and check in runs from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Teams of up to four walk, skip, or run through the little-known nooks of New Orleans and nearby locales and solve clues and complete challenges that take them through neighborhoods such as the French Quarter, Lower Garden District, and Marigny.
CitySolve lets citizens explore their metropolis through a one-day odyssey that tests speed, stamina, and smarts. Teams scamper through their burb as they solve clues ranging from anagrams and pop-culture trivia to deciphering graffiti written in pig Latin. Interspersed throughout the race are mettle-testing physical challenges, molding iron wills to such tasks as dodgeball, improv comedy games, or identifying ice-cream flavors. Each day's race also awards winners for best costumes and best tweet. Each urban iditarod takes between two to three hours, and jet packs are strictly prohibited.
