What You'll Get
For $29, today's Groupon gets you entrance to the Oyster Shooter Adventure Race, plus two beers at the Oyster Shooter Series (up to a $60 value), on Saturday, April 9. Participants must register by 3 p.m., Friday, April 8.
Designed as a less taxing version of the Oyster Urban Race, this adrenaline-packed relay leads racers with brawny bods and street savvy on a covert mission to uncover mysterious challenges around the city in the fastest time possible. Contestants lace up sneakers, stretch rock-hard winter muscles, and flip on their noggins, as this race combines athletic prowess with brain-stimulating strategy. Racers will be given a passport containing five checkpoint locations where they must meet physical trials such as running, biking, climbing, and paddling while simultaneously deciphering clues and completing challenging tasks. Destinations may be located at city sites such as public parks, stadiums, amusement parks, shopping centers, fitness clubs, zoos, retail stores, dining establishments, high-rise buildings, and any other landmark a pop-culture movie-monster might invade. For the challenges, competitors may be asked to complete an obstacle course, solve puzzles, bowl, brave a rollycoaster, slip 'n' slide, tube in a river, or even chug a beer, and the course they take to arrive at the check point is completely up to them.
Upon finishing the 5-mile-long course, racers will have the opportunity to strike it rich as they compete in a surprise $50K challenge. The top 10 men and lady finishers will also receive awards, and all racers will acquire an Oyster Shooter T-shirt and a complimentary beer at the celebration following the race (this deal includes two additional beers at the after party). To check in the day of the race, follow the light to the white tents at Heritage and Science Park (115 North 6th Street) on Saturday, April 9 from 9 a.m.–11 a.m. Check out additional race info, including a list of required items needed to complete the challenge tasks.
