For $35, today's side deal gets you entry for a team of two in the Great Urban Race (a $100 value). The Great Urban Race is a one-day event pitting teams of two against one another in a race combining physical challenges, scavenger hunts, and puzzles. The Toronto Great Urban Race will be held on July 17. The race starts at noon.
Up to 500 twosomes will traverse the terrain of Toronto as they solve 12 clues in a fun quest to reach the finish line first. Sample clues and challenges from past Great Urban Races include charades, bubble-gum chewing, Pig Latin deciphering, bicycle races, and word scrambles, making this race ideal for competitive eaters and cryptographers alike. Teams are encouraged to dress up in matching outfits, and prizes will be awarded for best costume. Prizes are also given for race results, with $300 going to first place, $200 to second place, and $100 to third place. The top 25 teams will qualify for the National Championship in Las Vegas in November. Each participant gets a T-shirt and post-race refreshments. Read over the rules, feast on FAQs, call up the Garfunkel to your Batman, and register for Toronto's Great Urban Race.
