Chicago CitySolve Urban Race 2013 + Full Race Results

CitySolve Urban Race Chicago 2013 was more exciting than Lollapalooza! Team Vegan, er, Egan fueled by some kind of protein beat the competition like a meat tenderizer. They finished with a final time of 1:22:37! Team Egan came in a tad over 9 minutes ahead of Peer Review.

Best Costume went to “S.W.A.T. Team” Their costume was one of the best puns CitySolve had ever seen! Thanks for bringin’ the fun! They took home the best portable speakers…yes…Jammy Packs!! For your own portable jams visit the JammyPack online store.

best tweet chicago 2013 We would like to thank Mickeys for hosting our 7th annual Chicago race. The front deck is great for catchin’ a cool Chicago breeze and for people watchin’ on Clark. Swing by for a cold one sometime.

One Brick Chicago is the place for stress free volunteering and making friends. Their mission is to make volunteering easy and they do. Check out its website at Racers and CitySolve help raise nearly $1,000. Apparently the fundraising was more successful and with less stress and in less time. Way to go everyone!

A special thank to Noosa for running the super deliciously tasty Aussie yohgurt (it’s spell correctly) checkpoint.

Racers got down and dirty at Halsted Flowers. Teams are to repot plants!
