Racking up lazy points on the beach is no way to ring in the unofficial start of summer... okay, yes it is, but not every year. Switch gears and rev up $49 to participate in the Amped Up Adventure Race Series on Sunday, May 27 (regularly $100). Taking place along the scenic Fox River Trail in downtown Aurora, this six-hour fearless escapade features sprinting, paddling, biking, and an urban obstacle course to benefit the redesign of the Aurora Downtown Canoe Chute. This deal includes kayak or canoe rental, as well as admission to the pre- and post-race parties at Two Brothers Roundhouse and Ballydoyle Irish Pub & Restaurant, respectively. After tackling six miles each of rugged biking and running, four miles of paddling, tire flips, rope swings, high hurdles, and more, you'll gladly celebrate your Memorial Day weekend with a complimentary cocktail -- once you catch your breath.
