Race Day Recap

Congratulations to all Masterminds in San Diego who conquered the Great Urban Race! All participants started their adventure at Jolt’n Joe’s and then went on to discover the hidden clues in their city. Masterminds completed a variety of unique activities that required quick thinking, problem-solving, and physical tenacity!

Throughout the day our participants competed in a slow bike race at Wheely Fun Bike Rental and went “bowling” with pool noodles and marbles at East Village Tavern. Masterminds were also caught acting like elephants at Elephant + Castle when they had to catch a slinky on their head. Another favorite was Donut Bar where participants threw a donut out of a two-story building to their teammates on the ground.

We’d like to give big high-fives to our first, second, and third place teams who all receive a free entry to the 2014 National Championships in Vancouver where they’ll have the chance to compete for $10,000 in cash prizes. In first place, we had The Nads finishing in 1:14! Top Gun finished in second with a time of 1:36 and Dominating Dels grabbed the third place spot at 1:37 on the dot!

Thanks to all of the teams who dressed up and brought some added spirit to the day. A special shout out goes to The Cereal Killers for winning the costume contest! We would also like to thank our St. Jude volunteers, all of our clue locations, and of course all of our amazing Masterminds! The GUR Crew had such a fantastic time and we hope to see you again later this year on August 9th in Vancouver!
