Last year my sister and I participated twice in The Amazing Hunt, once in a foot race Granville Island and the other in Surrey (with car travel). Fashioned after the popular CBS and Emmy-winning reality show The Amazing Race, this hyper-local adventure challenge tests your brains and brawn with tasks that take place in a handful of cities across Metro Vancouver.
Since September 2004, The Amazing Hunt introduces this new racing style which provides an opportunity for you to discover a city’s hidden treasureâ€¦ 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]
2008 Race Dates and Locations:
Bill Lin and his team also create special one-off events and races, which are ideal for company team building exercises.
This morning John and I signed up for the Vancouver edition on May 3rd so we’ll be checking in on the blog closer to the date to find out our exact starting point in the city.
Do you think you know Vancouver better than us? Do you think you can outrun John? Do you think you can eat more buckwheat honey by the spoonful in a single sitting than me? Sign up your team of two for any of The Amazing Hunt races this season and I guarantee you’ll have a blast!
