What You'll Get
Getting out of the house is often precluded by inclement weather, car trouble, and the tender bond between man and household dust mite. Step outside your domestic comfort zone with today's Groupon: for $45, you get race entry for two people to San Antonio's CityScape Adventures race, held Sunday, March 11 at 11 a.m. (up to a $150 value).
CityScape Adventures entangles race participants with a web of 12 obstacles spread across a citywide race to the finish line. Participants compete in teams of two, using their wits, teamwork, and underground network of mutant-turtle spies to complete the tasks given at the start of the race. During the 12 challenges, racers take on a bevy of puzzles, riddles, and clues that guide treasure hunters to a specific location within the city, where each team must complete a special task using only their cleverness and muscles. Participants must bring a selection of items, including a digital camera, a pen or pencil, $10 each in singles for public transportation or emergency slushies, and comfortable shoes. The first team to successfully complete all tasks and vault over the finish line will receive a prize and an assembly line of high-fives.
Check-in for the five-hour race begins at 11 a.m. at Dick's Last Resort on Navarro Street, and the race begins at noon come rain, shine, or meteor shower. CityScape Adventures welcomes teams of friends and family members, although each team must have at least one adult, and children younger than 12 are not allowed to compete. Questing competitors should follow CityScape Adventures on Facebook for an extra sprinkling of hints on race day.
