Brainy Day

You’ve heard of adventure runs – which typically include mud and extreme obstacles -- but if you don’t boast brawn over brains, you might get left in the dirt. We figure that if Gilbert and Lewis could conquer their chiseled fraternity bullies in Revenge of the Nerds, then there’s hope for dorks with vendettas. Get vengeance on Saturday, December 17, when Cityscape Adventures offers a different kind of escapade.

Race participants will receive an envelope containing a variety of puzzles, riddles, and scavenger hunts. Competitors will then have five hours to find their way to each secret location and face a thrilling (or at least silly) challenge. The team to complete every challenge and cross the finish line first wins.
