Great Urban Race: Chicago!

Pictures and a little bit about the clues can be found here!

We had a great time. Team WeeM beat the rest of us by about an hour. Team Cake or Death (my team) came in second, of our group, with Team Twomey coming in close behind. Official results will be up on the GUR website by Tuesday, we’re told. None of us were fast enough to win anything cool.

Scott & I did some estimating using the GMap pedometer, and we figure that Team Cake or Death ended up walking 4.5 to 5 miles. Team WeeM probably walked/ran about 7-8 miles. Team Cake or Death would have been in a half hour earlier, but they got stuck waiting on an uptown bus to finish the last 1.8 miles. (Team WeeM walked/ran that bit.) The multiple closures and re-routes of the loop trains made the trains mostly unreliable and useless for us suburbanites, so we did much more bussing than we should have. 🙂

Anyways, it was really fun, and I’m looking forward to next year!
