Proceeds to benefit San Diego Senior Olympics


by Christopher Mohr


April 7, 2010 (San Diego) - The CitySolve Urban Race series comes to San Diego on Saturday, April 24 at noon. The event is a scavenger hunt where participants, who are competing on teams, navigate the course by foot or public transportation while searching for clues and completing challenges along the way. It is a mini version of television's The Amazing Race competition, offering participants a unique perspective of the city that they likely would not see otherwise.


The top 25 teams are eligible to compete in the national championship in New Orleans on October 30. Of these 25 teams, the top three teams get free entry to the national championship, while the top team wins $300.


Proceeds from the event benefit the San Diego Senior Games Association (SDSGA) a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization offering a series of competitive and recreational events, luncheons, educational seminars, intergenerational projects and partnerships to help increase activity in the 50+ population.


Their biggest event of the year, the San Diego Senior Olympics takes place annually in September. SDSGA is a local affiliate of the California State Games Association (CSGA) and the National Senior Games Association (NSGA).
