CitySolve Urban Race February 18th!

For the third year in a row, our dear friends at Charity Chicks are partnering with one of the whackiest adventure races around - CitySolve Urban Race.

The costume-studded event takes place Saturday, February 18th from noon-5pm starting at Little Woodrow's Downtown.

Here's a run down of the jolly good time: Teams of two race around the city of Houston solving pop culture clues. The teams can get to the clue spots by either foot or public transportation - no bicycles, no rides from friends, no taxi cabs, no skateboards, etc. You've got feet, buses and metro - that's it.

Along the way there are wacky stunts, funniest tweet contests, costume contests, and other fun things. You can win money (hello...$5,000), a chance to attend the finals and race against the other 20 cities and the glory and bragging rights to be named Houston's CitySolve champs.

Entry is currently $50/person BUT not for our lovely readers:)

Use the code "chic" when you register, and receive the early registration discount of only $25/person.

A portion of the sales will also benefit The Joe Joe Bear Foundation.

Just for funzies, below you'll find a couple examples of last year's clues. Be sure check out the Citysolve website for more info.

Clue #1: Now I know my ABCs...A spontaneous good time awaits you at your next Checkpoint Challenge, along with the cast of Houston’s favorite improv troupe, Third Coast Comedy. Find them in a Houston park that borders 2 streets with surnames of the following Texas greats: 1. 1990’s Cowboys RB (boooo!); 2. Chuck Norris’ butt-kickin’ TV roll, also of the ‘90’s. HINT: The National Mall has one of these, but only bigger (guess not everything is bigger in Texas).

Answer #1: Intersection is Smith and Walker by the reflecting pool to find Houston's improvisational comedy troupe, Third Coast Comedy

Clue # 2: Don’t You Forget About Me… Possibly the best high school movie ever, this flick doesn’t star The Rat Pack, but famous teenagers whose group name rhymes with Sinatra’s. Think you got it figured out? Great! Now head to the establishment located on a street named for a famous William who lost his life at The Alamo.

Answer #2: The Breakfast Klub
