The World's Largest Urban Adventure Series Returns to Halifax with two Chases
TORONTO, Sept. 27, 2011 /CNW/ - The time apart was tough, but after five
years the relationship between City Chase and Halifax will be rekindled
as The World's Largest Urban Adventure Series makes its return to Halifax bigger and better than ever. On the
weekend of October 1st, The Mitsubishi City Chase Powered by GoodLife Fitness will return to
Halifax with two separate events - The 2011 City Chase Canadian
Championships (September 29 to October 1, 2011) and a Halifax regional
event (October 1, 2011) which will be the start of the 2012 Series.
"With the spectacular history, culture, and adventurous spirit that
exists in Nova Scotia, City Chase simply had to return" says David
Nash, vice-president, InField Marketing Group, the company that owns
City Chase. "We have great local partners, strong support from the
city and some unbelievable challenges that will help City Chase return
with a bang that will echo and last for many years to come. "
The "bang" Nash speaks of is the taxing 36-hours of non-stop adventure
that will be the foundation of The 2011 City Chase Canadian
Championships. The Championships will see regional winners from
Edmonton, Calgary, Kelowna, Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa and Vancouver
compete in ChasePoint challenges designed to push the Chasers' physical and mental limits to their brink all while showcasing the
local history and culture, significant landmarks, and people who make
Halifax one of Canada's paramount destinations. Past Championships
have featured such challenges as rappelling Montmorency Falls in Quebec
City, fighting a raging car fire in Toronto, and stomping grapes at the
Jackson Triggs winery in Niagara Falls.
With respect to the Halifax edition, which will be the eighth Canadian
Championships for the City Chase Series, Nash says to "expect the
unexpected". Chasers could wake up one morning at the Citadel,
Hatfield Farms or the Titanic grave yard.
In the Halifax regional event, that will coincide with the final day of
the championships, teams of two will have to run, walk and utilize
public transit as they try to find and complete ChasePoint challenges scattered throughout the city. Similar to the
championships, the ChasePoints will present a variety of physical, intellectual, adventurous and
humorous challenges, but the demands of the event are much more
reasonable. Teams must complete only 10 of the 20 available ChasePoints within a 6-hour time limit.
"The beauty of City Chase is that anyone can do it," said Nash "Chasers
choose their own route, whether to run or take transit, and ultimately
whether they are in it for the competition or purely for the
