What You'll Get
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, November 5 at Café Nikki. Choose from the following options:
- For $25, you get registration for one (up to a $60 value).
- For $50, you get registration for two (up to a $120 value).
- For $75, you get registration for three (up to a $180 value).
Teams must have two or three members each, but each member of the team can redeem a Groupon.
On race day, teams of up to three walk, skip, or run through the little-known nooks of Las Vegas, gathering and solving clues that lead 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 in 2012, which has a grand prize of $5,000 (top 25 teams qualify for the race). Winners for best costumes and most creative tweet will also receive prizes. The competition begins 11 a.m., and check-in runs from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. The race takes between three and five hours, and jet packs are strictly prohibited. All competitors receive a CitySolve Urban Race T-shirt.
