More than 400 Chicagoland residents and corporate participants participated in the eighth annual event on June 27th.
The River North Challenge is a classic battle against the clock as teams travel through the historic neighborhood to compete, socialize, and experience the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat. Teams of four visited hotel checkpoint “Challenge Stops” and completed fun challenges and refreshed themselves with complimentary food and beverages. Teams chose to perform a physical challenge or a mental challenge – or both – to earn points and a passport stamp before moving to the next location.
There were also opportunities to solve riddles for extra points at “Bonus Stops” along the way. All groups finished at the Official After-Party location, Maggiano's, where winning teams and best costume winners were awarded prizes.
This year’s theme was “Chicago Characters.”
