In Race/LA, teams of two make their way to locations around the L.A. area - some famous and some little-known - performing challenges and solving clues that lead to their next destinations, all while racing against other teams in a heated competition to reach the finish line first!
Inspired by TV's The Amazing Race, and now in its twelfth year, Race/LA takes you on a round-the-world adventure right here in Los Angeles. In each race, players make their way to many cultural, historical, natural and entertainment-related attractions, from hidden Hollywood secrets to spectacular architectural treasures, and from tranquil parks and gardens to frenetic urban shopping areas.
Spend an unforgettable day on a uniquely awesome journey that will have you discovering new places, solving challenging clues, meeeting new people and having an amazing day of fun that you'll never forget!
TRAVEL is by car, on foot, and occasionally by other methods. Race/LA may occur anywhere within Los Angeles County, usually covering between 25-40 driving miles from start to finish. Players will not know in advance exactly where they will be traveling.
CLUES are in sealed envelopes at each location, and may be photographs, hints, puzzles, specific directions or some combination of these. Teams often have to perform a certain task before receiving their next clue.
ONE WAY clues contain a task that only one member of each team will perform.
INTERSECTION clues give teams a choice of two different tasks, with different advantages and disadvantages to each.
MERGE clues force two teams to temporarily team up to complete a task together.
FASTLANE cards allow teams to skip one location.
SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS Race/LA is a physically active event. Players should be in reasonably good physical shape, although you certainly do not need to be an athlete. Teams should be able to think and act quickly, and work well together.
COST $115 per person / $230 per team.
LENGTH OF THE RACE is usually about 6 hours, beginning at 8:30 am.
MONITORS are an integral part of Race/LA, and often have as much fun as players. Monitors are stationed at locations throughout the race. To read more about Race/LA Monitors, click here.
