I have been looking to do an “urban scavenger hunt” for a while now, and it looks like I missed out on the one that just came through Chicago called City Chase. I did the Urban Assualt last year, but that was more bike ride than scavenger hunt. I remember seeing some folks on the CTA a while back participating in some kind of scavenger hunt, but I am not sure if it is the same one. Anyway, here is some more information:
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 ChasePoint challenges scattered in unknown locations throughout the city. The challenges are designed to test mind, body and spirit. To conquer this urban event, two-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. After two years, City Chase became the largest “Urban Adventure” race series in the world! There is limited space in each city so invite your friends and register today.
Here is hoping they come through Chicago again next year…I’ll jutst keep an eye out earlier since I know what it is called.
