It's part urban adventure race, part endurance sport, part costume party, City Chase Chicago is set for August 27th and if you're looking for a challenge then this may be the event for you.
Athletes use teamwork, resourcefulness and the ability to make decisions on the fly as they search for ChasePoint challenges scattered in unknown locations throughout Chicago. To conquer this urban event two-person teams will run, walk and use public transit to navigate their way throughout the city, calling family and friends for help, accessing the Internet and even employing assistance of total strangers.
Past ChasePoints have had teams complete a Marine boot camp drill, partake in an underwater relay-race and even take cooking lessons with world renowned chefs as they make their way towards the finish line.
In it's fifth year City Chase is partnering with Special Olympics Chicago to help support those athletes and their dreams.
Chicago is the only U.S City Chase event in 2011 and has limited space, but there's still time to sign, up, find a cape, your sense of adventure and see if you have what it takes to tackly City Chase Chicago. Click here for more info.
