Get ready to take on the 2014 River North Challenge June 24

Let the games begin! Competitors are eagerly forming teams to compete in the 5th Annual River North Challenge hosted by the River North Business Association June 24. Teams will spend a memorable evening adventuring through River North hotels, partaking in mental and physical challenges. Each check point presents a new challenge, when accomplished earning competitors “challenge points” towards a grand prize as well as a stamp on their “passport”. A team’s overall point sum, completed passport and the accuracy of their challenge answers will ultimately determine this year’s River North Challenge winner!

The locations along the River North Challenge will keep you fueled for success. This event, which delivers in the fun and games department, is accompanied by complimentary food and beverages at River North’s favorite destinations -- Challenge Stops.

Each Challenge Stop presents teams with the choice of an active challenge, mental challenge or both to gain maximum points. Upon completion of each challenge the team will be provided with the location of their next challenge.  Bonus Checkpoints along the journey will provide competitors with additional opportunities to increase point totals.

Start getting your team together because you won’t want to miss out on these prizes. The winning team will take home a tremendous prize package from the Businesses of River North. All event participants also will be entered in a Door Prize Drawing to further their chances of taking home great prizes such as gift certificates from restaurants, bars, hotels and spa packages.

Teams are encouraged to wear costumes and uniforms, or design their look around a team theme. Go big or go home, because the teams with the most creative attire will win big!
