Urban Dare Helena - Top 5 Finishers

Thank you to everyone who came out for the first ever Urban Dare Helena.

Congratulations to Valerie Pallister & Dave Burningham of Team UPS who finished with an impressive time of 1:42:35. Andy Verbanac & Melanie Dayton finished second and third place honors went to Michael Miller & Amber McClure.

I always enjoy finding landmarks that people pass by every day, but have no idea what they are. My sister Erin (the reason Urban Dare came to Helena) reports that she was in Hill Park twenty feet away from the fountain, which is the northernmost memorial to confederate soldiers. She asked several people if they knew where the memorial was and nobody could tell her. She gave up and moved on to other checkpoints, before she backtracked to get her picture with this fountain.

Here are the top 5 finishers of Urban Dare Helena:

Valerie Pallister & Dave Burningham – Team UPS
Andy Verbanac & Melanie Dayton – Urine Trouble
Michael Miller & Amber McClure – Go backoff in your own jackyard
Aspen Incashola & Erin Stephen – MFB’s
Natalie Gibson & Alex O’Dell – The Triple Threat

Urban Dare Denver Top 5 Finishers

Thank you to everyone who made our first Urban Dare Denver a success.

Congratulations to Christopher Baker & Ryan Ruddell of Herb & Heir for winning in an impressive time of 1:37:06. Second place went to Erica & Jeff Jorgensen, and Sasheen Foronda & Brian Sheer came in third.

The stumper clue of the day was getting your picture with the 9/11 memorial. I think the problem in finding it is that there are too many hits under 9/11 when you search. There is a 9/11 memorial prominently placed on the corner of Washington and 13th Street that looks like a 10' tall red aids awareness ribbon. It is also marked on some of the downtown maps. In the firefighters museum there is a 9/11 memorial with a piece of the fallen World Trade Center with a plaque and other items around it. I also ended up accepting pictures of people with the Denver World Trade Center.

We’ll definitely make this an annual event.

Here are the top 5 finishers of Urban Dare Denver:

1:37:06 - Christopher Baker & Ryan Ruddell - Herb & Heir
2:12:43 - Erica Jorgensen & Jeff Jorgensen - Jorg
2:22:56 - Sasheen Foronda & Brian Shear
2:33:34 - Calli Neistat & Luke Schafer - The Juicy Hotdogs
2:34:58 - Leigh Flanagan & Suzanne Spruce - Shirtless Neighbor Boy
