Before competing in a race, it's smart to build up your endurance with weekly runs or one practice marathon the night before. Be prepared with this Groupon.
$19 for Race Entry for a Two-Person Team ($40 Value)
The race kicks off at All American Pub on Saturday, August 18, at 10 a.m. Two-person teams can be either single-gender or coed, but only coed teams will be eligible to compete for the first-place prize, a cruise to Belize and Cozumel.
Scout Route Scavenger Hunt
One part race, one part bonding exercise, the Scout Route Scavenger Hunt challenges two-person teams to scour South End and surrounding neighborhoods for clues and points. Each of the 8 to 10 checkpoints scattered throughout the city houses a cooperative challenge, such as a quiz on capital cities or guiding a blindfolded partner through a puzzle. After conquering the trial, teams receive a number of points and a clue that leads to the next station. The first duo to accumulate 100 points and make it back to their home base earns a first-place prize and bragging rights valued at 1,500 handshakes at any participating high-school reunion.
