This Saturday is “Journey: LA”, a free street game which takes place this year in Glassell Park on Saturday May 5th.
Versions of this race happen every year in San Francisco, Munich, London, D.C., and Paris. Runners sneak through the city, completing challenges at challenges along the way, and most importantly avoiding getting tagged by Chasers. Like in a Zombie Run, any runner tagged by a Chaser becomes a Chaser, so usually only 10% of Runners ever “survive”, and often the race goes to the sneakiest rather than just the fastest.
Prizes go to the first Runners to make it through every checkpoint, and to the most successful Chasers.
FYI, the tall gangly looking Yacht Club member, Andrew Post is volunteering/giving out free hi-fives at one of the checkpoints.
