Urban Dare Orlando, Sat, May 8
Finally, the first Urban Dare of the 2008 season is upon us. Pictured are the top 3 teams of last fall's Urban Dare Orlando. Team Moop, in the middle, are the defending champions of this race.
Urban Dare Orlando starts at Noon Saturday March 8 at Lake Eola Park. We will begin check-in at 11:00am. Look for us in the light blue t-shirts in the area with tables where Osceola runs into Central Ave. We'll be taking registrations all the way up to the start of the race.
Urban Dare, www.urbandare.com, is the race where smarts can beat speed. Teams of 2 solve clues to find checkpoints where they must take photos or perform dares.
You must wear your Urban Dare shirts throughout the race, which we will give you at check-in. You should bring a cell phone and a digital camera to show your pictures at the end of the race. A cell phone camera will work. Maps are also handy and you should have someone to call to help look up clues. I also recommend a pen or pencil to take notes.
You can call friends as much as you want for help on clues. For the checkpoints that mention a dare, you must check in with the Urban Dare official, accomplish your task, and get your passport stamped before moving on. On checkpoints that mention a photo, you must get a photo with both team members to show you were both there.
This is a team race. You must be together throughout the race. You may walk, run or use public transportation to get to checkpoints.
At checkpoints with dares, you must accomplish a task and get your passport stamped to move on to the next checkpoint. Dares range from throwing a bulls-eye, doing a climbing wall, completing a puzzle or eating something (things people like, not bugs).
We expect the winners will finish the race in about 2 hours and most of you will finish under 4 hours. We are working to provide a fun-filled day for you, while providing some good challenges.
Take the dare!
