A Great Chase
In an event inspired by The Amazing Race, teams of two contestants trek through various locations throughout their city, guided by 10 brainteasing clues that either direct participants to a new locale, or demand chasers perform a creative task. Each chase consists of 10–25 teams, who bolt from their starting location to scour city streets for one to four hours. The first team to dash across the finish line wins a trophy and free entry into a championship version of the Great Chase, whose winner takes home $10,000.
