Experience Laughter, Adventure and Discovery... in the World's Largest Urban Adventure Series!



    The Mitsubishi City Chase Presented By BlackBerry will once again turn
    Toronto into a giant urban obstacle course on Saturday June 21st.

    TORONTO, June 18 /CNW/ -

    
    What:  City Chase is an urban adventure that requires teams of two to
           exhibit teamwork, resourcefulness, determination and the ability
           to make decisions on the fly as they search for physical,
           intellectual and adventurous ChasePoint challenges scattered in
           unknown locations throughout the city. Focusing more on the
           journey than the destination, Chasers will learn about their city,
           their teammate, and themselves as they enjoy a full day of
           Laughter, Adventure and Discovery through an original urban race
           experience!!

           Edmonton, entering a burning building in Toronto, completing a
           thrilling zip line across Hog's Back Falls in Ottawa, boxing
