Back in September the City Chase crew blew through town one weekend for the Canadian championships. While this is bill at part obstacle course, part scavenger hunt, what happened in St. John's was also part marathon and part triathalon going on for 36 hours where the competitors had to figure out the route as they went. A physical, intellectual, psychological and social challenge that will change your view of “sport.” Tonight on CBC will be the part documentary/part reality TV presentation of this unique event. It was an amazing event to be a part of and without a doubt the most fun assignment I've had, so far, this year. WORTH THE WATCH …or Tivo-ing!
