MONTREAL, June 30 /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,
