Whether it's a cousin's wedding, PhD dissertation, or puerile British comedy show, a frenetic chase scene makes everything better—especially if accompanied by equally frenetic saxophone music. Create your own frenzied sequence with today’s Groupon: for $84, you get one team registration to the Kelowna Mitsubishi Motors City Chase on Saturday, June 4 (a $168 value). Teams are composed of two people, at least one of whom must be a Canadian citizen.
City Chase packs a season's worth of The Amazing Race into up to six hours of frantic, fun-filled activity. After being handed a sheet of cryptic clues, teams of two run, walk, pigeon-strut, and use public transportation to navigate from ChasePoint to ChasePoint scattered throughout the city, each stop waiting with a challenge that demands every last dram of teamwork, resourcefulness, determination, and quick-wittedness. Every year and every city boasts different challenges, with previous trials including handling snakes, engaging in swordplay, pole dancing, playing dodgeball, leaping from vertiginous heights, and diving into freezing water. ChasePoints have no preset order, meaning competitive tandems must strategize their own route and challenges. The first team to complete at least 10 ChasePoints and cross the finish line wins and gets to compete in the national championship. Check out the FAQ and rules and regulations to ensure adequate preparation for both the completely unexpected and the degree to which hard-earned sweating can be charming. Buyers of this Groupon must register by May 25.
The first City Chase event took place in Toronto in 2003, and since then, City Chase has expanded to 15 countries throughout the world and involved tens of thousands of participants. Today's Groupon is your chance to join those multitudes and experience your city's true reality: the kind that can only be perceived through reality TV.
