Today's side deal fulfills adventure-reality-show fantasies: for $45, you get registration for a two-person team for The City Scramble in Ft. Lauderdale. 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 for the race begins at 8 a.m. on Saturday, July 17 (check-in location TBA), where racers will don matching T-shirts and mingle with the competition before setting out on the adventure at 9 a.m. Cameras, maps, running shoes, and cell phones are recommended racing paraphernalia. A portion of the registration fees are routed to The Pet Project, a local charity dedicated to promoting and preserving man's relationship with his animalistic friends. Bring the registration form and your Groupon with you on race day.
