About This Activity

Whether you are an avid runner, or a couch potato, if you are looking for some outdoor fun, filled with uncontrollable laughter and some sweat, then Downtown Domination is for you!  The race will take a good mixture of brains and brawn along with a whole lot of enthusiasm!

Think “Amazing Race’ but on a much smaller scale! Teams of  2-4 will take to the streets of downtown Butler to complete a variety of challenges ranging from physical, to mental, to just plain ridiculously silly and fun! At the start of the race, teams will be given a clue sheet with the locations of 15 checkpoints embedded in the clues.  Use your street smarts and strategy to choose your route as you hustle from clue to clue.  Complete the challenge as a team and receive your passport stamp before racing to your next checkpoint.  At the finish line, we will welcome you back with cash prizes for our winners, water, cold beer, good eats, and live music.

Enter Downtown Domination for the immeasurable excitement and laughter you will engage in, and the camaraderie and teambuilding you will never forget.  But most importantly, do it for the difference you will be making in the lives of so many children suffering from congenital heart defects.  Jameson's Army strives to help the families at The Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC (CHP), The Children's Home and Lemieux Foundation, Your Child's Place and many other medical facilities and families touched by CHD in the Pittsburgh, PA Area.

Early registration includes a T-shirt and one beer ticket.
