The Amazing Hunt is On

Being an avid Amazing Race fan, when I found out last year that there was a local version for Vancouverites I jumped at the chance to participate.

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]

Early this spring I had the chance to compete in the Granville Island edition. The Amazing Hunt operates a new race every few weeks, giving you the chance to participate in the region of your choice. Complete with footraces, eating challenges, brain teasers and obstacles of all sorts, the Amazing Hunt also includes elements of the TV show such as “Merge” and “Detour”.

Aside from being a great way to spend a day in the city, it’s also an excellent team builder for offices and groups alike.

The next race is August 11th in Vancouver, followed by September 8th in Surrey and October 20th in downtown Victoria. Visit the main site or blog for more details, I guarantee you’ll have a blast!

    Oh sounds fun! Too bad the Aug 11th date is full already.

    Good luck! And better luck than me … when I auditioned for Dragon’s Den (think: canadian idols, except businesses pitch for venture capital). I got eaten alive!
