Teamwork is most effective in pairs, from the vaudeville acts of Laurel and Hardy to the crime-fighting melodies of Batman and Garfunkel. Reap the benefits of a sidekick with this Groupon.
$35 for Race Entry for One ($75 Value)
Participants make teams of two or three for a race through the city, which combines scavenger-hunt clues and creative challenges. Each team receives a free bottle of water, event T-shirt, and clue packet, as well as discounts at participating sponsors. The race is held in all weather, and because many challenges require jaunts through casinos, all participants must be 21.
This Groupon is also valid for races in San Diego, Atlanta, Phoenix, and Miami.
A Great Chase
In an event inspired by The Amazing Race, teams of two or five contestants trek through various locations throughout their city, guided by 10 brainteasing clues that either direct participants to a new locale, or demand chasers perform a creative task. Each chase consists of 10–25 teams, who bolt from their starting location to scour city streets for one to four hours. The first team to dash across the finish line wins a trophy and other prizes.
