Be Sporty in Your City!

DC-Run-Club

Are you a runner looking for some sweet new kicks? Maybe you’re a swimmer needing a new pair of goggles… Or perhaps you play tennis and are hoping for a cool, new racquet!

Well, no matter your sporting needs, you can be sure that City Sports can meet all of them – so come on down and see what the RACKET is about! From team sports like baseball or basketball to individual sports like running or swimming, City Sports provides high-quality gear for athletes, both professional and recreational. Their wide assortments of gear combined with their great deals make them an easy choice for the times when you need something new! As an added bonus, they provide in-store services such as racquet stringing or gait analysis.

Here’s an interesting fact: Did you know that the inspiration for City Sports was born when two men needed a basketball inflation needle? They found it troubling when no sporting goods store carried what they needed, so they envisioned a store that would be able to meet the everyday needs of athletes. Now, thirty years later, their vision has become a reality!

Check out their website for great deals and discounts: www.citysports.com. Hope to see you at the Washington DC 19th Street location for Packet Pick-Up on April 25! Register here for CitySolve Urban Race DC on April 26!

One mind, One Brick?

one brick

One Brick focuses on uniting the local community by providing a social environment for not only the volunteers, but also the community non-profit organizations. This organization provides a great opportunity for volunteers to help out the local non-profit organizations as well as socializing with their fellow volunteers. Unique to other volunteering organizations, One Brick opens up a time and place after the volunteering services for the volunteers to meet and bond with one another.

As you may have guessed, One Brick is CitySolve Urban Race DC’s featured charity organization. Operating in many other cities and assisting over 1,600 organizations, One Brick is widely successful as it contributed a total of 50,000 hours of service just last year. We are excited to partner with such an impactful organization that strives to unite local non-profits with others who are passionate in assisting community organizations as well as assisting organizations to better impact the community.

Do you want to be a part of assisting hundreds of local non-profit organizations, which include benefitting children, the environment, local schools, etc.? Well you can, by participating in CitySolve Urban Race DC. Interested? Buy your tickets here.

Chicago Urban Race Charity Event!

Chartiy Event Logo

The 2nd Annual Chicago Urban Race benefiting the Children’s Heart Foundation will take place on Saturday, April 26, 2014. Join us as we  raise funds and awareness for congenital heart defects (CHD) research!

In this urban scavenger hunt, teams of 2-4 individuals will band together to navigate the Windy City as they solve puzzles to reveal their next destination and on-site challenge. Be the first team to complete at least 9 of the 10 challenges and return to the starting point (Lucky Strikes Lanes in downtown Chicago) to win! Participants may use cell phones, laptop, tablets, GPS, etc. The only stipulation is that participants walk, run or use public transportation to complete the race.

The Chicago Urban Race is proud to partner with California-based CitySolve Urban Race for our second year. 100% of all proceeds from this event benefit the Illinois Chapter of The Children’s Heart Foundation, and will be used to fund the most promising and cutting-edge CHD research.

What is Rickshaw?

rickshaw

We keep mentioning how we’ve partnered with Rickshaw Bagworks for our 2014 CitySolve Urban Race series, but how much do you actually know about Rickshaw?

For starters, the company originated in San Francisco for bikers. Their name is derived from three Japanese characters that mean “human-powered vehicle” (which is essentially what a rickshaw is – see the correlation?) and is a shout-out to the many bikers that dominate urban areas.

Rickshaw realizes that bags are important, personal items that we can easily get attached to. C’mon, who doesn’t have a favorite bag, backpack, or laptop case? That’s why Rickshaw provides high-quality bags which you can personalize on their website to ensure that the products you buy from them will definitely be your new favorite.

Second place winners of our CitySolve races receive Rickshaw Bagworks gift certificates. We want you to treat yourselves to something special. But even if you don’t come in second place, Rickshaw makes the purchasing process easy and affordable with their discounts and offers!

In honor of Easter being this Sunday, Rickshaw is offering an Easter egg hunt! Follow them on instagram and keep your eyes peeled for hidden eggs in their pictures. For every egg you find, you’ll receive 10% off and be entered to win a free bag. For more info, visit: http://blog.rickshawbags.com and be sure to sign up for one of our upcoming races on our website: www.citysolveurbanrace.com!
