While participating in an urban obstacle race, contestants hone their skills in traversing city streets, skirting around traffic, and escaping the watchful eye of Big Brother. Shape up for urban evasion with today's Groupon for entry to the Oyster Shooter race on Saturday, August 27. Participants must register online no later than 3 p.m. on Friday, August 26, and must swing by check-in at Dick's Sporting Goods between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Friday, August 26. Choose between the following options:

  • For $20, you get entry to the race for one person (a $45 value).
  • For $35, you get entry to the race for two people (a $90 value).

Designed to be a less stressful version of the Oyster Urban Adventure, the adrenaline-packed Oyster Shooter leads racers with brawny bods and street savvy on a 5-mile mission to beat mysterious challenges around the city in the fastest time possible. Contestants prepare for the race's combination of athletic prowess and brain-stimulating strategy by lacing up sneakers, stretching rock-hard muscles, and flipping on their noggins. Then, clutching a passport containing five checkpoint locations, they set off to destinations such as public parks, stadiums, amusement parks, zoos, high-rise buildings, and any other landmark a pop-culture movie monster might invade. Oyster Shooter staffers then assign challenges—such as completing an obstacle course, solving puzzles, bowling, deciphering clues, braving a slip 'n' slide, and tubing—which must be completed before proceeding to the next checkpoint.

Participants are welcome to choose their own course to victory, just as taxpayers are free to decide how much money the IRS deserves. Upon finishing, the top three men and women receive awards, and all racers walk away with an Oyster Shooter T-shirt. Peruse previous challenges to get an idea of what the race may entail.

It was a fun time. Really took me outside my comfort zone in an exciting way. Be prepared for a lot of walking.
