Canada's Top Chasers will Face 36 Hours of Non-Stop Challenges
LONDON, ON, Sept. 4, 2013 /CNW/ - The Scion City Chase powered by GoodLife Fitness, the Canadian pioneer in urban adventure racing, will add a new chapter to the adventures from October 17th to 19th. Not only will London host the final regional event of the City Chase tenth anniversary season, but it will also serve as the backdrop for the 2013 Canadian Championships.
"We were elated to be hosting the London regional event October 19th, but adding the Canadian Championships will make the weekend that much more exciting for the community," said Cheryl Finn, Director of Sport Tourism, Tourism London. "To have the Champs intermingle with the regional Chasers will profile the City of London and put it on the National stage."
The Championships will feature the winning team from each of the 2013 regional events (Vancouver, Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto (2), Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax) and promises to deliver 36 hours of epic adventure that will take the participants out of their element and test their resourcefulness in unfamiliar territory.
"Beyond creating challenges that deliver the Scion City Chase promise to 'Experience the Unexpected', our team also strives to showcase the history, culture and significant features of the host city," said Dave Nash, London native and Vice-President, Influence Marketing, creators of City Chase. "London will provide the canvas for bold and unpredictable adventures and we cannot wait to unveil them to the Chasers".
In addition to the title of 2013 Scion City Chase Champions, the winning team will win an adventure vacation to Machu Picchu and the Amazon Jungle courtesy of Intrepid Travel.
Challenges in the past have included aerial ski jumping in Quebec City, shark fishing in Halifax, climbing Mount Sima in Whitehorse, participating in the Highland Games in Winnipeg, making wine in Niagara Falls and synchronized swimming in St. John's.
