What You'll Get

Race, don't loot, your way to a $5,000 grand prize. With today's Groupon, $60 buys entry for you and a friend in a Houston-based CitySolve Urban Race adventure on Saturday, March 20, at noon.

On race day, teams of two will walk, skip, or run through the unknown nooks of the Valley of the Sun, gathering and solving clues that will lead one lucky team to a $300 prize. The top three teams with the fastest legs and sharpest puzzle-solving skills will also win free entry in the Championship Race in New Orleans on October 30, which offers a $5,000 grand prize. Best uniforms, top family, top senior, and best tweet will also win a $50 gift certificate to a local restaurant or shop.

The race, starting at Little Woodrow's (check-in is from 11 a.m. to 11:50 a.m.), will take you throughout the Houston area to top-secret spots you'll discover on race day. The competition begins at noon, and the speediest teams will finish in about an hour and a half.


Having once gone by the moniker High Trek Adventure, CitySolve has received enthusiastic reviews across the nation. The Chicago Children's Fitness Examiner sanctions the adventure, saying:

  • In most running races, brawns are more critical than brains. However, in the High Trek Adventure race, you have to have both to top the rest.

Though there aren't web reviews for the Houston race in particular, Yelpers across California have given High Trek high marks. The race creators get an average of 4.5 stars on the Walnut Creek page and one five-star review in San Diego. Here's what racers say:

  • I participated in the Seattle race and had an absolute blast! I live in Seattle and the challenge brought me to areas within the city that I've never even heard of before… – Matthew F.
  • We had a blast! I recommend that you try it once if you're a big fan of TAR [The Amazing Race]. – Paula N.
