Saturday’s Pick: Austin Challenge

Rachel Corbelli

Form a team of two people or more and head to Banger’s Beer Garden (79 Rainey St) on Saturday to compete in the Ultimate Urban Scavenger Race. Solve tricky riddles, blaze the quickest trail, and discover uncharted nooks and crannies of Austin while edging out other challengers in an “Amazing Race” style competition.

A blend of smarts and speed will determine which team will leave with $300, free entry to the Las Vegas National Championships, and eternal glory. If hustling isn’t your strong suit, three $50 prizes are awarded to the teams with the best costumes.

Register online on the Austin Challenge website or at Banger’s before the race begins at 1 p.m. The registration fee is $35 per person and includes a t-shirt.

May the best (and best dressed) Austinites win!
