Tuck Fest Prep Week

Six-Pack Adventure Attack

Similar to the Adventure Races on Friday night of Tuck Fest, the Six-Pack Adventure Attack is a great opportunity to test your urban wayfinding skills before the weekend. Based in and around the South End area, teams of 2-4 will be tasked with finding as many different Bell’s Brewery checkpoints as possible within 1 hour. Teams will meet at Good Bottle Co. and be given a map and a punch card before hitting the streets. Raffle prizes, Bell’s beer, and awards will be flowing at all night.

Limit of 25 teams on a first come first serve basis

The second is a female-based ride departing at 6:05pm and average 15-17mph, following a similar route.

Tiger’s Eye

Tiger’s Eye is the stone of commitment, self-discipline, and personal empowerment. The ancient Greeks believed that it focused energy to help warriors meet challenges. The Tiger’s Eye series consists of a fighter’s circuit training regimen designed to improve functional strength and endurance followed by a hot yoga flow sequence. Participants wear athletic shoes during the circuit training portion of the workout.

Space is limited to the first 100 participants on a first come first serve basis.
