Over the last few years Bill Lin and his crew have organized Vancouver’s own version of the Amazing Race, and have done a fantastic job. My sister and I were lucky enough to participate earlier this spring and I have to say it’s a really great adventure.

Since September 2004, The Amazing Hunt introduces this new racing style which provides an opportunity for you to discover a city’s hidden treasure… its culture, landmarks, and history. Our goal is to create a positive and healthy lifestyle in your community while promoting local tourism, business, and charity. [The Amazing Hunt]

The races run every few months in various cities around the lower mainland. Their endurance levels vary as well and there are always new challenges. Although the recent race on August 11th had a fantastic turn out, Bill and his crew are looking for volunteers to help out with the upcoming event in Surrey on September 8th. Visit him over at the Amazing Hunt Blog for more information about racing and volunteering for these great teambuilding events.

Upcoming races:

September 8th 2007 Saturday – Surrey (Space Limited)
October 20th 2007 Saturday – Downtown Victoria

Jenny and I are doing the Surrey race, which won’t be a foot race this time, so if you’re up to the challenge sign on up and we’ll see you there!

    I’m glad it’s not a foot race this time. I’m pretty sure our combined over 45 years of Surrey knowledge will come in handy. No last place for us this time!
