What You'll Get
Today’s side deal gives you the chance to participate in an urban race that is frustrating but rewarding, energizing but exhausting, and anything besides boring. For $50, you get a two-person team entry to the Phoenix Twilight Town Trek on Saturday, May 15 (a $100 value). The Twilight Town Trek is a combination scavenger hunt, 5-k race, obstacle course, and strategy game in a race format. Teams of two start at the Local Breeze Patio Café for registration and check-in at 5:30 p.m., where they will receive a slew of clues that will guide the adventure. A mandatory meeting for all participants will take place at 6:15 p.m. to cover the ground rules, such as teammates must stay together and no teleporting allowed.
The race begins at 6:30 p.m., and most of the proceeds go toward the Arizona Humane Society. The extravaganza incorporates challenges that are mental, such as solving puzzles or unscrambling words, and physical, such as building a tower with blocks or jumping rope. There will be destinations that must be found using sophisticated strategy, and at some you must take a photo to prove you've made it. Adding to the fun is the option to don a costume during the race. Each costumed or street-clothed team must have a cell phone, digital camera, flashlight, whistle, cash, and IDs (see FAQ's for more information). Challenge your physical limits with today’s side deal and enjoy a workout that’s good for you and even better for your furry friends.
This Groupon covers entry for both members of a two-person team.
