A lot of people are adventurous - just maybe not crazy enough to lasso a Chilean llama, rappel into a French winery or navigate the streets of Moscow in a busted-out rental car.

"Amazing Race" fans after more laid-back exploring will be in luck Sunday during The Pointless Pursuit, a scavenger hunt that works like a less-risky version of the popular TV show.

"There's a little less travel," said Kristen Warren, president of the Warren Agency, which produces the event. "But we do really quirky kinds of things - things people don't normally do on an everyday basis."

During The Pointless Pursuit, teams of two have five hours to complete 12 challenges spread through the High Five district, which stretches from German Village to Campus. Destinations are discovered by solving clues given in a passport handed out at the starting line.

Past challenges have included eating hot wings at Buffalo Wild Wings, performing a pole dance at a local studio and getting a temporary tattoo at Evolved. Each team can determine its own course, but participants must walk, run or take COTA buses.

Cars, taxis and bikes are prohibited.

"You use strategy based on where challenges are located or ones that you might be better at," Warren said. "No two teams or races are going to be the same, because there's no set course."

During their quest, teams will experience Columbus neighborhoods, restaurants, shops and cultural attractions in a unique way, Warren said.

"The whole idea is that we're showcasing so many aspects - so many nooks and crannies - of the High Five district," she explained. "Whether you know the area or you don't, you'll have a day to be talking about all year."

Registration costs $45 per person until Sept. 11 or $50 the day of the race. Prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers and the team with the best costumes.
