Adventure races combine speed and clue-solving better than a fast-talking detective or a highlight reel from Columbo On Ice. Emulate a speed-skating sleuth with this Groupon.
Kicking off at noon at Lucky's Pub, duos follow the course of 12 clues that pepper downtown Houston, competing in mental and physical challenges in up to a five-hour race that benefits St. Jude & awards a $300 grand prize.
Great Urban Race sends teams of two or four on adventure courses that zigzag through major metro areas. Following the trail left by 12 clues or the scent of other, pot-roast-bearing racers, the four to eight mile trek takes anywhere between one-and-a-half to five hours to complete. Along the way, pairs will be called to complete brawn- or brain-based feats that may include everything from solving cryptograms and riddles to taking tae kwon do lessons, with a 30 minute penalty given out for each incomplete or incorrect challenge. Race organizers invite teams to dress up, and they hand out an award for best costume after teams cross the finish line. Top race finishers take home a $300 prize and free entry into the national championship race, which rewards winners with their choice of $10,000 or a lifetime supply of shoelaces. All racers take home a T-shirt, munch on post-finish refreshments, and can imbibe a free beer if theyre of age.
Red Frog Events, the organizers of Great Urban Race, encourage participants to raise funds for the St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital by donating $10 to each participant that registers as a St. Jude Hero. Only teams that raise the suggested $250 will be eligible for special race-day rewards, which are given out to the first Heroes team to cross the finish line as well as the team with the highest fundraising total.
