citysolve urban race san diego

i have a special place in my heart for the amazing race.  justin and i even tried out for the show but (as you can tell) we weren't chosen (yet).  in the meantime, i can do fun amazing race-like things with groups such as citysolve urban race.  three friends and i took the challenge one saturday.  yes, the hottest saturday EVER.  that's the day we decided to run around for 4 HOURS on a scavenger hunt.  but i digress...

basically, it's a scavenger hunt for charity.  this race's particular charity was It's All About The Kids Foundation, which "creates new and innovative programs to benefit children's charities and enhance the lives of less fortunate children and their families."

one of my teammates posted a great blog breaking out each clue and full of fun pics from the day.  you can check it out here.  the site hasn't released the official results yet but we came in around 4 hours.  what i was proudest about was that we actually finished the race.  many teams gave up early on by deciding not to solve and find all the required clues.  all in all, i think we did pretty well for our first shot at it and we all agreed that it is something we'll definitely try again (on a cooler day for sure).

one thing we noticed while "running" around was that there were at least 3 other scavenger hunt type events going on at the same time as ours.  it seems like these are pretty popular events around the country.  so if you're looking for something fun and different to do around your town i highly recommend checking one of these out.  you'll see your city in a new way.
