San Diego Rocket Race was saddened to report
that the Supercolossal Fan Race 2008 was canceled due to really low
turnout. Comic-Con may be too busy a time to have to have this sort of
event - or that a $200 prize is not enough to draw the crowds.
Adding to the craziness that hits San Diego during Comic-Con International, Rocket Race presents:
SUPERCOLOSSAL FAN RACE
July 24, 2008 - 7 pm
Starting line: "Coming Together" sculpture at the south end of the San Diego Convention Center
Grand Prize: $200
Entrance fee: $20 per team
Dynamic duos will get a chance to put their geekiness to the ultimate test as they race on foot around downtown San Diego. Encompassing more than just the sci-fi nerdiness of our San Diego Rocket Race, we're pulling from all the depths of fandom: comics, movies, fantasy, gaming, and more. If it's popular and geeky, we might just throw it at you.
Since driving downtown during Comic-Con is just plain stupid, the Supercolossal Fan Race is on foot only (no pedicabs, bikes, rollerblades). Teams of two need to stick together as they solve clues and find the next checkpoint. Comic-Con registration is not required. The race should be able to be completed by 9 PM.
