Great Urban Race- Manhattan

29 Aug

On Saturday August 20th, my roomate and I took part in the Great Urban Race adventure in NYC.  I had been looking forward to this since the moment I discovered it, as it combines my love of fitness and puzzles!  Essentially, the Great Urban Race is a race where 2 teammates must travel to different locations throughout a city by solving 12 clues (well, 11-as you are allowed to skip one!).  Oh, and the teams must be wearing matching costumes!  There is a 5-hour time limit to complete the puzzles and get back to the finish line.  We finished in 4 hours and 23 minutes, and would have finished in less time if not for an entire subway line being down! Here’s a photo recap of our race:
