- $45 for entry for a two-person team to the Urban Dare Adventure Race (up to a $90 value)
Teams set off on Saturday, August 17, at noon from Auld Dubliner. The race, which consists of an on-the-move trivia challenge and photo hunt, generally lasts fewer than four hours, and the winning team receives a free entry to the next Super Dare, whose $5,000 grand prize allows winners to dare each other to invest in low-risk mutual funds.
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. Combining the bustle of a track meet with the brain-taxing sleuth work of a luge competition, the race uses a dozen trivia-based clues to lead contestants to checkpoints all over their sprawling metropolis. Location hunters reach their checkpoints by whatever means necessary, be it hopping a bus downtown, flying madly through a network of secret ziplines, or scuba-diving in a fountain for bus fare. At the mini destinations, racers must use a camera to document their presence or, in some cases, get their passports stamped after completing challenges that may include a climbing wall or solving a riddle.
