Thank you to everyone who competed in Urban Dare Philadelphia.

Congratulations to our winners Ed Wagner and Nicholas Ventrola who finished only seven seconds ahead of the second place team of William Bodenschatz and LeeAnn Tanaku (Official time difference is 5 minutes and 7 seconds after bonus’s). Third place went to Chris Goodwin and Kim Goodwin.

Special thank you to Chris Goodwin and Ed Wagner for the fabulous photos. Not everything went as planned due to the Independence Hall Clock Scaffolding but it was great to see all of the teams go with the flow.

Even though the Phillies lost later that night, I was inspired by all of the Roy Halladay Jersey photos especially the two teams who took a picture of a dog wearing the Jersey. I should have made an executive decision and given an extra bonus for that.

Here are the top five finishers for Urban Dare Philadelphia:

1:30:00 Ed Wagner and Nicholas Ventrola - Clubedventures
1:35:07 William Bodenschatz and LeeAnn Tanaku
1:46:00 Chris Goodwin and Kim Goodwin -Team Shannon
1:50:42 Sara Dinardo and Brian Germain
1:53:01 Lauren Krug and Zach Guren

Urban Dare Nashville - Sunday, Oct 17

Urban Dare Nashville will start and finish at Dan McGuinness Irish Pub at 1538 Demonbreun St.

Due to the large number of registrants, we will begin registration at 10:00 am.

This year we are relaxing our rule on having to wear Urban Dare shirts. If you have team costumes/uniforms, you may wear those. Otherwise, you must wear the Urban Dare shirts, which you will receive at check-in. We will have a $50 prize for the best costume.

You should bring a cell phone and a digital camera to show your pictures at the end of the race. A cell phone camera will work. Maps are also handy and you should have someone to call to help look up clues. I also recommend a pen or pencil to take notes.

Urban Dare,, is the race where smarts can beat speed. Teams of 2 solve clues to find checkpoints where they must take photos or perform dares.

Once you are out of the starting blocks, you will pick up your clue sheets and be on your way. You can call friends as much as you want for help on clues. For the checkpoints that mention a dare, you must check in with the Urban Dare official, accomplish your task, and get your passport stamped before moving on. On checkpoints that mention a photo, you must get a photo with both team members to show you were both there.

This is a team race. You must be together throughout the race. You may walk, run or use public transportation to get to checkpoints.

At checkpoints with dares, you must accomplish a task and get your passport stamped to move on to the next checkpoint. Dares range from throwing a bulls-eye, doing a climbing wall, completing a puzzle or eating something (things people like, not bugs).

We expect the winners will finish the race in about 2 hours and most of you will finish under 4 hours. We are working to provide a fun-filled day for you, while providing some good challenges.

We now have a family division. I've always allowed kids to race with their parents, but never made an official division. Family divisions can be three or four people and must have one person 16 or under.

See you at the race.
