Jane McGonigal is running two new events for her latest game, Cryptozoo, the first weekend of June in San Francisco.

Update: Two new events have been added in NYC in Manhattan as part of the Come Out and Play Festival.

  • SF NIGHT CHASE – Friday, June 5, 2009 downtown San Francisco 8-10 PM
  • SF DAY CHASE – Sunday, June 7, 2009 along the Embarcadero 2-4 PM
  • NYC NIGHT CHASE – Friday, June 13, 2009 Midtown Manhattan 9-11pm
  • NYC DAY CHASE – Saturday, June 14, 2009 Midtown Manhattan 2-4pm

Participants will take on a 1 mile chase through the city, so you must be prepared to get a bit sweaty. Being “fast, athletic or coordinated” seems to be optional. You should wear sneakers and comfortable running clothing. You should also bring a bottle of water and a flashlight for the night mission, but leave your other gear behind – unless you really want to run with all of it.

If you are interested in participating, sign up at the Cryptozoo Network and RSVP so that they know how many runners will be attending.
