On Saturday, July 21, racers meet at Hard Rock Cafe at 9:30 a.m. to prepare for the 11 a.m. challenge. They receive a clue packet and map leading them off in all four directions within a 3- to 5-mile radius. At each destination a challenge awaits, such as dipping hands into an unidentified substance to fish out a clue, taking a photo with an object, serenading a stranger, or making funny faces. After solving 10 of 12 clues before the 2 p.m. deadline, participants race to the finish line to enjoy food specials, entertainment, and a possible cash prize. In addition to the obstacle race, participants can enter the costume contest for an additional chance to win cash prizes.

Gorilla Challenge

Not many events can combine puzzles, obstacle races, and charitable giving-all while filling the downtown area with people in gorilla suits. Gorilla Challenge accomplishes all of these things in a single afternoon. With annual events held across the country, it is quickly becoming the premier event for raising fun and social responsibility. Several of the event's clues are designed to bring awareness to topics such as literacy, poverty, environmental concerns, animal welfare, and elder care. Amid these consciousness-raising events, the company's gorilla-suit-clad staffers make surprise appearances to award participants prizes and collect bribes in the form of fresh bananas or sign-language-speaking kittens.
