Teams never know what's waiting around the next street corner during the Mesa Adventure Challenge. Group obstacles, human pyramids, or even a ride on a Big Wheel might stand in the way of completing the race's various checkpoints, and team members should be prepared to crack some Morse code, collect scavenger-hunt-style items, or answer local trivia.
Mesa Adventure Challenge sprinkles tasks like these across a 5- to 10-mile route. Participants can ask strangers for assistance, use smart phones, and even call friends, who are hopefully having lunch with the town oracle. The challenges can take anywhere from 1.5 to 3 hours to complete, but all of the work pays off at the after-party, complete with an award ceremony.
