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 in teams of two or three race through the city as they work through 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; individual participants must be 18 or older, and minors must be on a team with a parent or guardian. The San Diego race begins in the Gaslamp Quarter Historic District, which is a vibrant neighborhood in Downtown San Diego, at 1 p.m. on June 24, July 21, August 18, and September 15. Check-in begins at noon each day.
This Groupon is also valid for races in any other participating U.S. city. All participants in Las Vegas must be 21 or older because many challenges require entering casinos.
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.
