DC Challenge - Downtown - Penn Quarter - Chinatown: $25 to Participate in the DC Challenge Ultimate Urban Scavenger Race ($50 Value)

Scavenger hunts unite the educational experience of getting to know your city with the raw thrills of scouring the urban landscape for objects that will ensure your continued survival. Engage in this venerable post-apocalyptic tradition with today's deal: for $25, you get to participate in the DC Challenge, a one-day urban scavenger race taking place on Saturday, May 1 (a $50 value). Individuals of every age, ability, and medieval guild are encouraged to participate.

During the challenge, teams of two or more individuals will run helter-skelter around the city in a vibrant race for cash prizes and personal pride, with a first place award of $750. Not only will participants have to solve strands of interconnected clues that would test the deductive powers of even the most seasoned consulting detective, they'll need to plot spatiotemporal stratagems while exploring undiscovered corners of the city. Although being physically fit is a plus, it's quick wits and wise planning that will ultimately determine the winners. Participation in the challenge gets contestants a clue packet, race-number bib, and a free T-shirt, as well as helps with contributions to partner charities and the prize pool. The website offers a FAQ page with further details on the intricacies of the race, what to wear the day of, why it's not okay to bring your pet boa constrictor, and more.

After the race is through and winners determined, all participants are invited to partake in an after-party and awards ceremony. Challenge participants receive one free drink, and food and drink specials will flourish while additional prizes, such as best costume, will be announced. Proceeds from the race benefit Bread for the City and The Clinton Bush Haiti Fund. A challenge that's equal parts fun, charity, and adventure is hard for even the most spicily seasoned cynic to resist. Take a chance, grab some clever friends or wild-card strangers, and take part in the flagship DC Challenge.
