Just as another competition of The Amazing Race comes to an end, we have word that  “amazing” races are taking place in major cities  across the United States.  Heads up Boston, you’re next on Saturday, May 15th!

2010 Washington DC Winning Team

If you watch CBS’ popular series The Amazing Race and think, “shoot I could do that”… here’s your chance to grab a buddy and give it a one-day try.  The folks at Urban Dare have designed an adventure race series that visits 32 cities nationwide, culminating in a Super Dare competition with a $5,000 prize. Two person teams are given challenges to navigate urban landscapes in a quest to solve clues, beat the clock, and document their successes.  The contest covers approximately 5 miles of city terrain which can be crossed by foot or public transportation.  Participants are given clue sheets that send them on a mission to complete tasks, solve puzzles and arrive at checkpoints where they receive a ‘passport’ stamp before heading off on the next challenge.  Winning teams typically complete the contest in two hours, with many more arriving at the finish line in four hours.

If you think you are cagey enough to out-wit and out-scramble the competing teams to claim your city’s top Urban Dare championship title, come out to register right up until race time.  In Boston, the competition begins at 45 Union Street, with registration beginning at 11am.  All proceeds from the event go to fight breast cancer, and the winning team will progress to the next Super Dare competition in early 2011.  Visit the site for a full list of cities that will host competitions through the summer and fall.
