The Great Urban Race – Amazing Race in your City!

It’s back again, for another year of fun races!

Coming to a city near you. 

The Great Urban Race is like the Amazing Race, for one day, in your city. Teams of two compete to solve  twelve clues for the local prize, and winners move on to New Orleans to compete for the $10,000  Grand Prize!

It’s a wacky urban adventure and the clues are a mix of mental and physical challenges. (Is there liquor involved?)

Physical Challenge: Feed your teammate some tasty food, do something daring or compete in a game. Mazes, Segways, Tae Kwon Do lessons, bicycle races, holding huge fish, canoeing and many other activities were used during the 2008 season.

 Scavenger: Return to the finish line with an item or find a specific vendor.

 Puzzles: Think anagrams, Sodoku puzzles, word searches and crosswords.

 Brain Teasers: Riddles or tests to tease your brain.

 Challenge: Interaction with the general public.

Teams are encouraged to dress up –
or dress down – and have fun!
*High Heels  are NOT encouraged.
