Think of the CitySolve Urban Race as a triathlon where the three events aren’t swimming, running, and biking—but sleuthing, sprinting, and trivia. In this innovative race and with today's Active.com Schwaggle—your team will solve clues and face outrageous challenges while navigating through the city on foot or using public transportation. A chance to break away from the doldrums of your everyday routine, this competition will give you the opportunity to solve brain-bending clues that may include pop culture, math, U.S. history, anagrams, Sudoku, and more to get to checkpoints across the city.
And of course there are prizes--this is a competition, after all. The first place team and runner up take home an exciting bounty of $300 and $150, respectively (or prizes valued at those amounts). And if you don’t think you’ll be a top finisher, you can aim to win the ultra-coveted Best Costume prize. It’s highly encouraged that teammates wear matching shirts and even more highly encouraged that you wear a ridiculous ensemble, like a tutu or a chicken suit. While not aerodynamic, when someone sees you running down the street in one of these getups, they are likely to stay out of your way.
CitySolve is a race for runners who like to think, thinkers who like to compete, and anyone who likes to play. Whether you are in it to win it, or just to have a wild adventure you will tell your grandkids about, CitySolve Urban Race will definitely be a day to remember. Don’t miss your chance to be a part of the frenetic fun. Jump on this Schwaggle now before it’s too late!
