But in 2010, things have changed: The Femalley Cat will now race in tandem with the Broseph Invitational, tailored for the dudes with its own set of challenges.
The tasks at the checkpoints are funny and sometimes cruel, Nordhem explains, but the Femalley Cat is more PG: The racers might have to do ten push-ups or drink a cup of coffee, things like that. The guys will have some, shall we say, extra challenges along their way. Shes not telling what those might be, however.
Registration is at 3 p.m. in the Denver Performing Arts Complex Sculpture Park, under the Borofsky dancers; both races start at 3:30 and wind their way through a mystery map of downtown businesses and hot spots before ending at a secret location around 4:30 p.m., where side events, including a ladies Lipstick Shuttle Sprint and the Bro Wet T-Shirt Trackstand Contest, will take place. Finally, prizes will be given out later at Starz FilmCenter before the evenings BFF screenings.
Registration for the races is $5 each, and Nordhem says the best way to experience them if youre not competing is to volunteer to work the checkpoints, or show up at the after-event.
