Race Day Recap
Congratulations to all participants in Los Angeles who made our fourth Great Urban Race of the year such an awesome success! We had around 300 Masterminds at the event and the beautiful weather made for an awesome day of adventure. All participants started the race at the Happy Endings Bar and Restaurant and went on to explore the streets of Hollywood. Masterminds completed a variety of unique activities that required patience, brains, and physical strength!
Some of our other favorite clues at this event included the yummy frosting and sprinkles challenge at Frosted Cupcakery, the bouncy obstacle course that brought back some great childhood memories, and the improv game at the Second City. We were also extremely impressed with all your dance moves at the Blackbird Dance Company!
A special thanks to everyone who donated to the Hollywood Beautification Team, your efforts are truly appreciated! We’d also like to thank all of the St. Jude volunteers and each of our Los Angeles St. Jude Heroes! We’d like to give you all a big high-five for supporting such an amazing cause.
We would also like to extend a special congratulations to our first, second and third place teams who all receive a free entry to the 2013 Championship Race and the chance to compete for $10,000! In first place, Catch Us If You Can AND Gaucho Locos came dashing through the finish line with a time of 2:06! We Dream of Great Urban Race wasn’t too far behind, crossing the finish line at 2:10 on the dot! And shortly after, Brujan Tech Team AND 2 Armenians and a Couple Persians tied for third place with a time of 2:11! Congratulations to our very speedy, and very close, Top (Five) Three Teams!
The weather on race day was beautiful and so were all of you! The costumes in LA did not disappoint. After an intense clap-off between some awesome costumes, it was Life of CGI that won the crowd over! Thanks to everyone who dressed in costume and added to the spirit of the day!
Thank you again to our St. Jude volunteers and all of our clue locations and of course, all of our phenomenal participants. This was our 7th year in Los Angeles and the GUR Crew had an incredible time. We look forward to seeing you again next year, thanks Los Angeles!
