Today's side deal fulfills adventure-reality-show fantasies: for $45, you get registration for a two-person team for The City Scramble (a $90 value), held in St. Augustine on Saturday, August 7. Teams consist of two people, and each team must have at least one member older than 18.
Modeled after The Amazing Race, The City Scramble is a hyper-local adventure that pits teams of two against one another to complete a series of tasks and clues with a cash prize waiting at the end for the winning team ($250 for each person on the team, a $500 total first-place prize). Check-in on the day of the race begins at 7 a.m. at Mill Top Tavern, where racers will don matching T-shirts and mingle with the competition before setting out on the adventure at 8 a.m. Cameras, maps, running shoes, and cell phones are recommended racing paraphernalia. A portion of the registration fees are routed to Art Breakers, a foundation of artists dedicated to supporting the needs of local cancer patients. Check the rules, and pre-register online by Wednesday, August 4 with this online form.
