The Oyster is an urban adventure race that's part Eco-Challenge and part Amazing Race, but way shorter and, if i do say so, surely more fun. Before the race, you know that you'll be biking and running, but the rest is kept a secret until you get your Passport which outlines your next destination, task, and mode of travel. Then you get another Passport, and so on.
Jonathan Dorn, Katie Herrell, and I raced this past weekend. Over the course of our day, we hunted obscure sculptures, made guacamole at the original Chipotle Mexican Grille, ran stairs in the Hyatt, played name that tune in a weird basement showbar, snuck into Water World, drove motor scooters, played beer pong and more. It was 34 miles of pure fun.
Here's a look at our tracklog and some photos and video.
