Promotional value expires Sep 12, 2010. Amount paid never expires. Registration required. Participating groups should register together. Merchant is solely responsible to purchasers for the care and quality of the advertised goods and services.

For $25, today's side deal gets you a regular registration for one person (a $70 value) to participate in the Nashville Challenge. The one-day urban scavenger race takes place on Sunday, September 12, starting and finishing at Paradise Park. Adults of every age, ability, and medieval guild are encouraged to participate. The race starts at 3:30 p.m., but you can show up as early as 12 p.m. to pick up your pre-race packet.

During the challenge, teams of two or more individuals will run helter-skelter around the city in a frantic race for cash prizes and personal pride, with a first-place award of $200. Not only will participants have to solve strands of interconnected clues that would test the deductive powers of even the most seasoned consulting detective, they'll need to plot spatiotemporal stratagems while exploring undiscovered corners of the city. Although being physically fit is a plus, quick wits and wise planning will ultimately determine the winners. Participation in the challenge gets contestants a clue packet, race-number bib, and T-shirt, and fees also help toward contributions to partner charities and the prize pool. The website offers a regular FAQ, as well as a Groupon FAQ with further details on the intricacies of the race, what to wear the day of, why it's not okay to bring a boa constrictor, and more.

After the race is through and winners determined, all participants are invited to partake in an after-party and awards ceremony. Challenge participants can partake in drink specials and music while additional prizes, such as best costume, are announced. Proceeds from the race will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Middle Tennessee. A challenge that's equal parts fun, charity, and adventure is hard for even the most spicily seasoned cynic to resist.

The $4.84 fee with regular registration is covered with today's Groupon.
