Experience more in 6 hours than most people will in the entire summer as the
world's largest adventure returns to Toronto on August 14th!

Back for the 2nd event this summer - The Mitsubishi City Chase Powered By BlackBerry will turn Toronto into an adventure playground again on Saturday August 14th.

TORONTO, Aug. 10 /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!!

            Highlights from the 2009 Series include:
            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
