Experience more in 6 hours than most people will in the entire summer as the
world's largest adventure launches in Kelowna on June 26th!

The Mitsubishi City Chase Presented By BlackBerry will turn Kelowna INTO AN ADVENTURE PLAYGROUND ON Saturday - June 26th.

KELOWNA, BC, June 15 /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!!

           Strip bowling in Vancouver, navigating mini bikes in Edmonton,
           climbing the 802 stairs of the Calgary Tower, touring with
           rickshaws in Toronto, white water rafting in downtown Ottawa,
           rappelling 31 stories from The Omni Hotel in Montreal, aerial ski
           jumping at the North American Championships in Quebec City, and a
