EXPERIENCE MORE IN 6 HOURS THAN MOST PEOPLE WILL IN THE ENTIRE SUMMER AS THE
WORLD'S LARGEST ADVENTURE RETURNS TO VANCOUVER ON AUGUST 28TH!

The Mitsubishi City Chase Powered By BlackBerry in partnership with Urban Recreation will conclude with the 8th and final regional event of The 2010 Series, on Saturday August 28th when Vancouver is turned into an adventure playground for nearly 1000 Chasers.

VANCOUVER, Aug. 24 /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, adventurous and humorous ChasePoint challenges
           scattered in unknown locations throughout the city. Focusing more
           on the journey than the destination, participants 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!!

           Past highlights include:

           Pulling a carriage through Vancouver's Stanley Park, Climbing the
           802 steps of The Calgary Tower, playing under water hockey in
           Edmonton, rappelling 28-floors down Toronto City Hall, completing
           a thrilling zip line across Hog's Back Falls in Ottawa, boxing
           against the Mayor of Regina, and learning to do aerial ski jumping
