Urban Adventure Series Challenges You To Do More In 6 Hours Than Most Would All Summer
TORONTO, July 11, 2012 /CNW/ - City Chase, The World's Largest Urban Adventure Series has embarked on a four month odyssey of adventure and adrenaline pumping challenges for over 10,000 Canadians across the country. The midway point of Laughter, Adventure and Discovery is in Ottawa on Saturday, July 21 and will kick off at Ottawa City Hall at 10 a.m.
"Things are about to get bigger, better and wilder in Ottawa!" Said Dave Nash, Vice-President and partner, InField Marketing Group (creators of City Chase), "Ottawa is our fastest growing market and undoubtedly one of the most passionate."
In City Chase, teams of two must find and complete challenges hidden throughout Ottawa based on clues they will receive. Chasers begin at Ottawa City Hall and will do more in 6 hours than most would all summer.
"City Chase is designed to push people out of their comfort zone, showcase the city, its history and culture," said Nash. "We design challenges based on four principles: physically demanding, mentally taxing, laughter inducing or just plain jaw-dropping."
Ottawa is a flagship market for City Chase and organizers strive to make challenges as memorable as possible for participants. This year Chasers will be looking forward to competing against over 1,200 other Chasers. The winning team from each regional event will compete in the 2012 City Chase Canadian Championships in Whitehorse, Yukon where they will endure over 40 hours of grueling competition. This year's grand prize is a two-week mega adventure to Tanzania including Kilimanjaro and the Serengeti valued at $10,000 courtesy of Intrepid Travel.
A creation of InField Marketing Group, City Chase is a global consumer event series, offering unique experiential 1-day adventures that have toured various major markets throughout the world. Based in Toronto, InField Marketing Group has already successfully executed City Chase events in major markets across Canada, Europe, Australia, Asia and the United States.
