OCT 16, 2010: URBAN HUNT: San Francisco kicked off Reality Rush’s California Tour with a huge success! Teams of two checked in at the Embarcadero Center outfitted to take the city by storm. They used their creativity and sense of humor to compete for the Best Costume prize and to show off their team unity.

Top costume contenders included Team Wasians who spent hours tattooing their entire bodies and made homemade convict outfits and Team Fresno in overalls, but Team WTF (Witness The Fitness) was voted the winning team for their double-decker tourist bus costume!

As the hunt began, teams were excited to spend a beautiful fall afternoon exploring San Fran! They completed clues and challenges in various neighborhoods including Chinatown, The Mission, and Inner Sunset. Teams had to interpret Chinese characters to locate the Golden Gate Cookie Factory, test their martial arts skills at the Paresh Martial Arts and Yoga Center, get in touch with their inner performer at the Circus Center, receive fortunes at Misdirections Magic Shop and give back to the community by making a donation to the Women’s Building.

In the end, Tami Fields and Chris Kinnard of Team Off Constantly were crowned the winner of URBAN HUNT: San Francisco. Their final time was an impressive three hours and thirteen minutes.

Second place went to Team Crazy Crab, and in third place was Team Dynamite.

Congratulations to our top teams and to all participants.

Thanks for a memorable and fun-filled hunt!
