Held on April 28, 2012, the Washington, D.C. leg of the CitySolve Urban Race sets packs of competitors loose through the city on an adult scavenger hunt. The competition begins at noon, and check-in runs from 9:45 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Teams of up to four walk, skip, or run through the little-known nooks of the District, gathering and solving clues that take participants through neighborhoods such as Georgetown, Penn Quarter, and DuPont Circle. One lucky team will traipse its way to a $300 first prize, and the day's top three teams win free entry into the National Championship on Saturday, November 5, where they'll compete for a cash prize of $6,500.
CitySolve Urban Race lets citizens explore their metropolis through a one-day odyssey testing speed, stamina, and smarts. Teams scamper through their 'burb as they solve clues ranging from anagrams and American history to Kryptonian mad libs. Interspersed throughout the race are mettle-testing physical challenges, molding iron wills to such tasks as building a house from cards or identifying ice-cream flavors. The top three teams with the fastest gams and sharpest puzzle-solving skills will also win free entry into the National Championship race in sunny Miami on Saturday, November 3, where they will sprint their way toward cash prizes totaling $6,500 (the top 25 teams qualify for the race). Each day's race also awards winners for best costumes, top senior (55 and older), and best Tweet. Each urban iditarod takes between three and five hours, and jet packs are strictly prohibited. All competitors receive a CitySolve Urban Race T-shirt.
