Urban playground

This Saturday is the Mitsubishi Toronto City Chase. My partner and I got together last night and the "Blister Sisters" are geared up and raring to go. Hydration knapsack - check! Street map - check! Public transit map - check! Portable GPS - check! Cell phone (and family on standby with Google access) - check! Camera - check!

We have no idea what to expect, except that it's Part Scavenger Hunt, Part Obstacle Course.

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.

I have a feeling this will be a race like no other; our very own Amazing Race.
