Weekend Recs : Great Urban Race
This weekend, the Great Urban Race hits NYC. Not familiar? Its a citywide scavenger hunt that incorporates puzzles and physical challenges (think of The Amazing Race on a smaller scale). August 4th is the NYC qualifier and any two-person team is able to compete. If you’re up for the challenge you can try your luck at finishing in the the top 25 to earn a spot at the national championship in Las Vegas. Race time is from noon to 5pm and you can register up until race time ($70 per person day of, $60 before August 3 at 5 pm). Not quite in GUR shape? Watch the teams scatter at race headquarters, The West 79th Street Boat Basin Cafe.
