How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Despite the insane heat that day, we had a good time. CityRace asks a series of questions about a defined particular part of Los Angeles and your team must run around to answer them - so you learn things you did not know about that area and also get a workout. This particular version also directed teams to locate hidden "keys" throughout the race in order to open a prize box. I did not enjoy this race as much as their Chinatown race (the only other one I've done), since the questions were more esoteric and not easily solved without benefit of internet searches. By contrast, one could solve nearly all the Chinatown race questions by looking around carefully or asking people. But we still had fun and learned a lot.

Help others enjoy a great night out

Very casual - you're running around for three hours
Be sure to bring lots of water with you - no food or drink is provided
It's very helpful to carry an internet-accessing phone or laptop - many questions require research
