Urban Dare Boston Top Five Finishers

Congratulations to Mark Mixer and Alison Shawver of EGVB, pictured above, for winning Urban Dare Boston.

The first four teams to arrive at the finish had the wrong picture for where the Massachusetts delegation ratified the Constititution, coming back with a picture of the Old State House. They had to go back out and get the picture in the right spot. The first and second place teams were also the first and second to arrive with the wrong picture.

Jordan Harrison, half of last year’s winning team, finished second. Amy Kloempken & Julie Rising of Windy City Rejects were the third team to arrive at the final checkpoint, but the Constitution photo kept them out of the top 5.

Here are the top 5 finishers:

2:20:30 - Mark Mixer & Alison Shawver – EGVB
2:24:17 – Jordan Harrison & Mike Bucchino – All Male All Nude Bean Town Urban Dare Revue
3:02:43 – Kathleen McCarthy & Kristin Anderson – K Squared
3:05:57 – Brian Sherman & John Previtera – Hardy Boys
3:17:00 – Jean Coleman & Jim Coleman – Team Coleman

The constitution was ratified by the Massachusetts delegation at the church of Reverend Jeremy Belknap, now the site of Bank of America. To celebrate the work of the state ratifying convention, Boston changed the name of the street where Belknap's church stood from Long Lane to Federal Street. The delegation discussed the Constitution at the Old State House, but did not ratify it until they met at Belknap’s church.
