NOON TODAY: MPower San Diego to host The M-Azing Race scavenger hunt

SAN DIEGO -- MPower San Diego is gearing up for the third annual M-Azing Race today from noon to 3:30 pm in Balboa Park.

The event is organized as a scavenger hunt type race, based on the popular reality show "The Amazing Race." Participants will be split up into teams of six and provided with a set of riddles and clues to guide them through the race.

Teams will have three hours to try to complete as many of the clues as possible, snapping pictures at the locations with each group member in the photo.

The day will conclude with a reception and dinner at 6:30 pm at a location that will be revealed at the end of the race.

MPower San Diego, a program of Family Health Centers of San Diego, is a social group that empowers gay, bisexual and curious men to become agents of change within their community.

The group holds weekly and monthly social gatherings, with all events being available for free or at a low cost.

Interested participants are encouraged to arrive at Balboa Park, near Dog Park on the west end at noon to sign in. Organizers suggest that participants bring a camera and wear running shoes.
