Thousands of participants gathered at Merchandise Mart Saturday morning to kick off City Chase 2010, the annual Amazing Race-like competition on Chicago's city streets. Eight hundred and forty-two teams of two had to figure out a series of riddles that unlocked the locations of the Chase Points set up all over the city. The goal was to complete 10 -- by walking, running or using the CTA -- and making your way back to the finish line at Joe's Bar on Weed Street. The winning team in each city wins a trip for two to the National Championships this fall.
