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 to the Oyster Shooter Adventure Race on Sunday, May 15. Participants must register by Saturday, May 14 at noon. Choose between two options:
- For $20, you get entry to the race for one person (a $40 value).
- For $30, you get entry to the race for two people (an $80 value).
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 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, or tube in a river, and the course they take to arrive at the checkpoint is completely up to them.
Upon finishing the 5-mile course, racers will have the opportunity to try Chipotle and Deschutes beer. The top 10 men and women finishers will also receive awards, and all racers will acquire an Oyster Shooter T-shirt. Peruse previous challenges to get an idea of what the race may entail.
