Held on September 29, the San Antonio leg of the CitySolve Urban Race sets packs of competitors loose through the city on an adult scavenger hunt. The competition begins at 11:30 a.m., and check-in runs from 10 a.m. to 11 a.m. Teams of up to four walk, skip, or run through the little-known nooks of San Antonio and nearby locales, gathering and solving clues that take participants through neighborhoods such as King William, Hemisphere Park, and River Walk. One lucky team will traipse its way to a $300 first prize, and the day's top three teams win free entry into the National Championship on Saturday, November 3, where they'll compete for cash prizes of $6,500.

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.

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