Who’s ready for a Challenge? How about this Sunday, March 23?
I know this is a pretty last-minute notice, but I have two sets of two FREE entries to the Challenge Nation San Jose urban adventure race is returning to give away here, so two lucky winners can have some fun – with a friend – this weekend!
So what is the event like? I haven’t done it myself, but this is how the organizers describe it:
The Challenge is like a scavenger hunt on steroids! It’s a miniature “amazing race” personalized for your city that combines the brain-twisting challenge of clue-solving with the active excitement of a foot race, while having tons of fun with your friends and family along the way!
When the race begins, teams of two or more will compete against each other to solve 11 out of the 12 clues we’ve carefully crafted, each of which will lead you to a unique challenge in a new location in the city. The quickest teams to return to the finish line after completing all the clues will win the cash prizes and qualify for our $5,000 National Championship in Las Vegas!
In total, you can expect to run (or walk – the event is meant for people of all ability and fitness level) about 3 to 4 miles around the city and moms or dads strollers are welcome! In fact, kids 5 and under participate for free.
Want to sleep in this weekend? No worries, with a 2 p.m. start you can sleep in, have a leisurely brunch – and then go put your Challenge on! Here are the time/ start location details for this weekend’s race:
Start/Finish: San Pedro Square Market (87 N. San Pedro Street, San Jose, CA 95110)
Check-in: 12:30 PM to 1:45 PM
Start Time: 2:00 PM
This isn’t a typical race with a pre-determined course – you make your course by following the clues you discover. Be sure to read the event FAQs before you go, they’ve got all the details there.
So what do you need to do to win one of two pairs of free event entries? (That’s right: two people will will free entries for themselves and a friend; that’s four total!) Very simple. Take a look at the Rafflecopter widget below and follow the clues (ha!). We’ll announce the winner this Wednesday, March 19, so hurry!
