It was the perfect, spring Saturday for an outdoor adventure. My good friend and I would be competing in the annual Urban Dare Adventure Race of Phoenix/Tempe.
The Urban Dare Adventure Race is a 5- to 7-mile race, similar to the “Amazing Race.”
First, we competed in the costume contest with our team name of the “MissFits.” We were then given a sheet of 12 clues with activities ranging from photo hunts, dares and physical challenges. All checkpoints had to be completed by either walking, running or using public transportation. We finished quite exhausted, but my friend and I both had a great experience. And I’m pretty sure we would do it again!
