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 the CitySolve Urban Race on Saturday, July 30. The competition begins at noon, and check-in runs from 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. Choose from the following options:

  • For $25, you get registration for one (up to a $50 value).
  • For $50, you get registration for two (up to a $100 value).
  • For $75, you get registration for three (up to a $150 value).

On race day, teams of up to three walk, skip, or run through the little-known nooks of Los Angeles, gathering and solving clues that lead through neighborhoods such as Hollywood, downtown, and Koreatown, with one lucky team traipsing its way to a $300 prize. Clues range from anagrams and pop-culture trivia to deciphering graffiti written in pig Latin. Interspersed throughout the race 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. Winners for best costumes, top senior (55+), and best tweet will also receive prizes. The race takes in three to five hours, and jet packs are strictly prohibited. All competitors receive a CitySolve Urban Race T-shirt.
