The Great Urban Race is a one-day event pitting teams of two against one another in a race combining physical challenges, scavenger hunts, and puzzles. Up to 700 twosomes will traverse 4 to 8 miles of Toronto terrain on foot and by public transportation as they solve 12 challenging clues in a fun quest to reach the finish line first. Sample clues and challenges from past Great Urban Races include charades, bubble-gum chewing, pig Latin deciphering, bicycle races, and word scrambles, making this race ideal for competitive eaters and cryptographers alike. Teams are encouraged to dress up in matching outfits, and prizes will be awarded for best costume. Prizes are also given for race results, with $300 going to first place, $200 to second place, and $100 to third place. The top 25 teams will qualify for the National Championship in New Orleans in November, with the top three teams receiving free entry. Each participant gets a T-shirt and postrace refreshments of fruit, granola bars, and a run through a Perrier sprinkler. Read over the rules and FAQs for more information.
Generally, adulthood forces people to give up childish pleasure, robbing them of the joy associated with playing in puddles, unearthing hidden treasure, and being silly in public. Sierra Adventure Sports wants grownups to regress, if only for a day. In service of that goal, the company organizes a variety of novel races that range from city scavenger hunts for the casual adventurer to creative triathlon courses for the ambitious athlete.
Scavenger Blitz, for instance, turns exploring one's city into a fun, fast-paced race scattered with clues, obstacle courses, and riddles. Racers in teams of at least two scour the urban jungle in search of 12 clues, which can include challenges, riddles, or orders that need be completed before crossing the finish line. Some send racers hunting for a snapshot in front of a landmark, whereas others challenge them to complete some special feat, such as conquering an obstacle course on stilts. The Mad Mud Run challenges participants to sprint and frolic through a dirty and deliciously fun outdoor obstacle course littered with manmade obstructions such as cargo nets, hills of hay bales, monkey bars, and slimy mud pits. Extreme Heat Adventure Races combine equal parts triathlon and scavenger hunt to create a 10–12K journey filled with running, river rafting, and mystery challenges that could pit teams against anything from blindfolded puzzles to wall climbs. Most Sierra Adventure Sports events encourage racers to compete in costumes of all types save for gremlins, which multiply in water and unfairly dominate the timed results.
Zagat describes the Los Angeles Brewing Company as "a dramatic space, with a ceiling that seems to ripple, a mezzanine reached by marble and wrought iron stairs, a bar long enough to accommodate 100 beer taps––and many secrets." This is a nod to the restaurant’s enigmatic basement, riddled with Prohibition-era tunnels and old vaults pocked by machine-gun holes. Owner Ralph Verdugo, who gutted the historic Chapman Building himself to make way for his delicious venture, recalls pulling once-hot lead from the cellar walls. His labors are part of a citywide effort to bring back the Broadway corridor’s bygone splendor and restore it to the destination it was when it hosted the city’s first Spartan gladiatorial games in 1924.
Four humungous projection screens hang above the bar like billboards and cast more than 100 taps in a sports-fueled glow. Though the proprietors think of the restaurant as a beer-lovers’ oasis (it has a beer club and crafty offerings such as Great Divide's Yeti Imperial Stout), no expense is spared on the American comfort menu, which sources farmers' market produce for heirloom-tomato and fresh-fruit salads, as well as succulent medleys of fresh veggies. Hand-cut garlic fries can also be found wrapped like flower bouquets in conical tissue—ideal pairing for pairing with brewery burgers, bourbon barbecue with garlic aioli, and salty-sweet caper rémoulade.

Since Pepperdine moved to Malibu from Los Angeles in 1972, the school's athletics program has accrued accolades in a variety of team and individual activities, becoming one of only 16 NCAA Division I schools to win men's national titles in five different sports. In addition to the Waves' national championships in baseball, women's sand volleyball, and men's tennis, the men's volleyball team claimed five titles between '78 and '05, prompting opponents to bring metal detectors to matches in hopes that new trophies were buried under the floorboards. Among the more than 100 individuals and teams lining the Waves' hall of fame, several Pepperdine alum have gone on to careers in everything from the pro tennis circuit to Major League Baseball.
