Running a race is a great way to practice running away from an angry grizzly bear or toward a charismatic mountain lion. Keep pace with nature with today's Groupon for entry to CitySolve Urban Race Dallas on Saturday, April 2, at noon. Teams must have two or three members each, though contestants registering individually can join hands after redeeming their Groupons. Each entry includes a CitySolve Urban Race T-shirt.
- For $25, you get entry for one person (a $50 value)
- For $50, you get entry for a team of two people (a $100 value)
- For $75, you get entry for a team of three people (a $150 value)
On race day, teams of two will walk, skip, or run through the unknown nooks of Dallas, gathering and solving clues that will lead through neighborhoods such as Deep Ellum and Victory Park, with one lucky team traipsing its way to a $300 prize. Clues range from anagrams and pop-culture trivia to finding a suitable name for a gamboling kitten. Interspersed are mettle-testing challenges, molding iron wills to such tasks as building a house from cards or identifying ice-cream flavors. The top three teams with the fastest gams and sharpest puzzle-solving skills will also win free entry to the National Championship Race on Saturday, November 5, which has a grand prize of $5,000 and will be held in sunny Las Vegas (the top 25 teams qualify for the race). Winners for best costumes, top senior (55 and over), and best tweet will also receive great prizes. The competition begins at noon at Winspear Opera House and check-in runs from 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. The race takes three to five hours, and jet packs are strictly prohibited. Groupon holders must have a partner to participate.
