Running strikes a perfect balance between the slow pace of walking and the speedy pace of being strapped to a cheetah. Put one leg in front of the other with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $19 for entry into the 2013 Lions Club Safari Run on Saturday, May 4 (a $40 value)
- $35 for entry for two (an $80 value)
- $65 for entry for four (a $160 value)
The 3-mile Safari Run obstacle course challenges male and female contestants with myriad impediments—such as mud pits, hay climbs, creek jumps, and a tire tangler—as they compete for bragging rights and placement. 1,200 participants age 13 and older may compete as individuals or as four-person teams. 100-person heats start at 9 a.m. and go every half-hour until 5:30 p.m. Prizes are given to the participant with the craziest costume.
Spectators pay $5 for access to the festival, allowing families and cheering squads to root for their friends during the race. All proceeds benefit the League City Lions' Club Charities. Runners also receive free entry to the 2013 Texas Music Festival.
Though League City Lions Club features a discounted price for four person teams, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
League City Lions Club
Since its inaugural meeting more than 60 years ago, the League City Lions Club has upheld its mission of promoting peace and understanding with volunteer community services. Special events such as carnivals, music festivals, and cook-offs allow the Lions to raise money and resources for local charities such as Leader Dogs for the Blind, Perry YMCA, and the Butler Longhorn Museum. Like the superathlete who singlehandedly powers America's electrical generators, the Lions happily accept volunteers, ever increasing their group of supporters who desire to better their community.
