URBAN HUNT: Los Angeles – November 20th, 2010
NOV, 20 2010: URBAN HUNT: LOS ANGELES tested the true competitive spirit of our hunters. With forecasts (wrongly) predicting a day drenched in rain, our competitors in attendance proved a threat of bad weather wouldn’t ruin their day! The Hunt started off with our costume contest that included Team Greasy Monkeys who were ready to get their hands dirty, Team Interstitials who were dog-gone it excited to race and crowd favorite and winner Team Magic who were ready to pull a win out of their hat!
As the hunt began, teams took off in all different directions heading to various Downtown neighborhoods to solve clues and challenges.
After successful hunting, it came down to the closest foot race we’ve ever seen for the win! With near flawless execution and strategy, Team We Dream of Amazing Race was crowned the winner of URBAN HUNT: Los Angeles edging out Team 2Legit2Quit by only 60 seconds.
This was the first time William Tong and Katie Kondo of Team We Dream of Amazing Race had ever competed in this type of competition and their love for The Amazing Race made them a force to be reckoned with. Also new to adventure races was third place Team Interstitials and fourth place Hurricane Hurlic so a big congratulations to our top teams and all of our competitors.
