Bored? The tried-and-true weekend formula of jog, brunch, paper, errands and booze not doing it for you the way it used to? Well, how bout an adventure? How bout a chance to run, bike and paddle your way around the city in a quest for elusive victory? Billed as the "Ultimate Urban Adventure Race," the Oyster Racing Series will set teams of three or six against each other in a battle to cross the finish line first--imagine a wilderness eco race set in the concrete jungle. The route is kept top secret, and the course will challenge both fitness level and problem solving skills. This is the first time the nationwide phenomenon is landing in Nashville, so get in on the ground floor; weekend warriors and elite athletes alike are welcome.
