Urban adventure

A friend and I got to talking the other day and yet another crazy idea came into our heads. We've decided to participate in the Mitsubishi City Chase in Toronto on June 21st.

Experience Laughter, Adventure and Discovery!

The City Chase is a unique urban adventure that requires participants to exhibit teamwork, resourcefulness, determination and the ability to make decisions on the fly as they search for ChasePoints scattered in unknown locations throughout the city. ChasePoints are designed to test teams with a variety of physical, mental, and otherwise adventurous challenges.

To conquer this 4-6 hour urban event, 2-person teams will run, walk and use public transit to navigate their way throughout the city, while calling family and friends for help, accessing the Internet, and even employing assistance of total strangers. The first team to complete the required ChasePoints and cross the finish line WINS

It's the world's largest adventure series with races taking place all over the world from Vancouver to Hong Kong to Sydney.

I'm a huge fan of The Amazing Race reality series, so I figure this is about as close as I'm going to get. It should be fun! Our team name is Blister Sisters. :)

Thanks to Sarah who originally told me about this event.
