The Quickest Left – The Quick Left Office Chair Race

So you wanna be a rock superstar and live large? A big house, five cars, you’re in charge. Yeah, me too! Good news, Quick Left wants to make your dreams come true. Wat?! Exactly.

In honor of Boulder Startup Week, fun times, and good ole fashion competition, we are taking our office chairs to the streets. On Friday, May 17 at 4:00 pm the race flag drops and the madness begins. Starting at Quick Left, ten teams of 4 will hit the streets of Boulder rolling in their tricked out chairs. Try to picture it if you can like mash a up of “Pimp My Ride”, “Amazing Race”, and “Roller Derby”. Clues, hot dogs, challenges, orienteering, beer, sprinting, high fives, and so much more await these brave teams all while trying to get 1 member of their team pushed/pulled/towed/or dragged to the finish line first in their chair of choice.

Got your blood pumping and curiosity peaked? Of course I do, keep reading.

Rules:

  • Chairs can/should be modified, decorated, and pimped out but cannot contain an engine.
  • One person must remain seated in the chair at all times.
  • Team must wheel to 10 places on the map and collect 10 souvenirs from each location.
  • Team must tweet with the hashtag #QLChairRace once they arrive at locations
  • The first person to the final destination with all 10 souvenirs + 10 team tweets wins.
  • The final destination is not noted, it will be mentioned in a riddle at one of the stops.
  • Every racing participant must sign a liability waiver.
  • Don't have a chair? No problem. Visit Citron Workspaces Monday 12:00 – 3:30, Tuesday from 10:00 – 12:00 or Thursday from 12:00 to 4:00 and pick out a FREE chair to pimp.
