How would you like to do more in six hours than most would all summer? City Chase will give you that opportunity. It is set to bring its travelling circus of adventure and nerve-fraying thrills to a Canadian city near you.
“Entering our ninth season we cannot be more elated,” said Dave Nash, partner, InField Marketing Group which created City Chase. “This year we have put a dedicated focus on new and improved ChasePoints as well as ramping up the participant experience.”
Teams of two will compete in physical, mental and adrenaline-pumping challenges hidden throughout a major downtown core. Once teams have completed ten or more ChasePoints challenges, teams become eligible to cross the finish line. Though this may sound familiar, this particular Amazing Race is not televised or focused on ratings. Instead it is focused on creating a community of goodwill across Canada and converting goodwill into donations for Right To Play, its charitable partner.
“We are glad and proud to be associated with such a dynamic event,” said Sarah Stern, manager of corporate partnerships, Right To Play. “Together, we have raised over $800 thousand and look forward to continued successes in 2012.”
Stops across Canada include: Edmonton, Calgary, Toronto (twice), Montreal, Ottawa, Vancouver and Halifax. Winners in each regional Chase will earn a trip to the 2012 City Chase Canadian Championships in Whitehorse. Popular ChasePoints include white-water kayaking, large-scale rappels, military style boot-camps and pole-dancing routines.
A creation of InField Marketing Group, City Chase is a global consumer event series, offering unique experiential 1-day adventures in various major markets throughout the world. Based in Toronto, Canada, InField Marketing Group has already successfully executed City Chase events in major markets across Canada, Europe, Australia, Asia and the United States. The City Chase Series has been named Canada’s Best Sporting Event each of the past seven years, and has been the World’s Largest Adventure Series since 2004.
