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, June 23. Choose from the following options:

  • For $30, you get registration for one (up to a $65 value).
  • For $55, you get registration for two (up to a $130 value).
  • For $99, you get registration for four (up to a $260 value).

On race day, teams of up to four walk, skip, or run through the little-known nooks of Boston, gathering and solving clues that lead through neighborhoods such as Back Bay, the North End, and Faneuil Hall, 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 into the National Championship race in sunny Miami on Saturday, November 3, where they will sprint their way toward cash prizes totaling $6,500 (the 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.

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.

Was a tough race mentally..would have liked more obstacles that included making people do funny things.
