$45 for Entry for a Team of Two to Urban Dare Adventure Race (Up to $90 Value)
Teams set off on Sunday, February 17, at noon from Lummus Park. Races generally last fewer than four hours, and the winning team receives $300 and free entry to the next Super Dare, which has a $5,000 grand prize that allows winners to dare each other to invest in low-risk mutual funds. Proceeds from the race go toward feeding the hungry.
The Urban Dare Adventure Race is a fast-paced competition that challenges two-person teams to decipher clues, navigate the city, and perform playful stunts. Combining the bustle of a track meet with the brain-taxing sleuth work of a luge competition, the race uses a dozen trivia-based clues to lead contestants to checkpoints all over their sprawling metropolis. Location hunters reach their checkpoints by whatever means necessary, be it hopping a bus downtown, flying madly through a network of secret ziplines, or scuba-diving in a fountain for bus fare. At the mini destinations, racers must use a camera to document their presence or, in some cases, get their passports stamped after completing challenges that may include a climbing wall or solving a riddle.
