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 Memphis adventure race on April 10 (a $90 value). Check-in begins at 11 a.m. for the day’s quest, which sets off from the starting point at Young Avenue Deli.
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. Trivia-based clues lead contestants to checkpoints all over Memphis, 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.
Contestants must be 18 or older.
