The phrase “I know this city like the back of my hand” was inspired by the slumbering giants upon whom all major cities are built. Put your gargantuan wealth of local knowledge to use with today’s Groupon: for $45, you get a two-person team registration to the Urban Dare Fort Worth adventure race on December 4 (a $90 value). Check-in begins at 11 a.m. for the day's quest, which sets off from the starting point at the Magnolia Motor Lounge.
The Urban Dare adventure race is a fast-paced competition that challenges two-person teams to decipher clues, navigate the city, and perform playful stunts. A dozen trivia-based clues lead contestants to checkpoints all over Fort Worth, where they must use a camera to document their presence and, in some cases, the completion of challenges, such as scaling a wall or completing a puzzle. In addition to running and walking, contestants may use public transportation to move from checkpoint to checkpoint, though taxis, cars, and bikes are off-limits. Races generally last less than four hours, and the winning team receives free entry in the Super Dare, a cruise-based take on the Urban Dare concept that features a $5,000 grand prize. Proceeds from the race are used to benefit breast cancer research.
