On race day, teams of up to four walk, skip, or run through the little-known nooks of Austin, gathering and solving clues that lead through neighborhoods such as UT, Sixth Street, and SoCo, 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 in the National Championship race on Saturday, November 3, which promises $6,500 in cash prizes and will be held in sunny Miami (top 25 teams qualify for the race).

CitySolve Urban Race

CitySolve Urban Race lets citizens explore their metropolis through a one-day odyssey that tests speed, stamina, and smarts. Teams scamper through their burb as they solve clues ranging from anagrams and pop-culture trivia to deciphering graffiti written in pig Latin. Interspersed throughout the race are mettle-testing physical challenges, molding iron wills to such tasks as dodgeball, improv comedy games, or identifying ice-cream flavors. Each day's race also awards winners for best costumes and best tweet. Each urban iditarod takes between two to three hours, and jet packs are strictly prohibited.

Customer Reviews

If the site doesn't allow registry you can take the groupon to the event and they'll honor it in person. Very easy process overall.
