Can you SurviveDC?
The city spreads out before you. Rushing from point to point, lit by the slow strobe of fluorescent buses and dark streets. Stumbling into situations for a stranger’s signature. Fleeing unknown pursuers, breathing hard, admiring the landscape and the multitude of worlds hidden in it.
SurviveDC is a race through the streets of DC. You will try to visit checkpoints as fast as you can while avoiding being caught by chasers. Those who survive will be praised and feted at the end. Those who fall will become chasers themselves, rising to pursue their former friends and allies.
For one night, drop your relations, your work and leisure activities and all your usual motives for movement and action. Let yourself be drawn by the attractions of the chase and the encounters you find there.

Rules to Live By:
Start as a runner
Tie your blue ribbon visibly around your arm, keep the orange for later.
And remember - no buses, cars or bikes!
Evade the chasers
But if you're caught, trade in your blue ribbon as their prize. Put on the orange, and you become a chaser.
Beware of cars - this is real life.
Run for your life
If you can make it this far, just hit every checkpoint and make it to the finish line. Good luck!
