Fans of “The Amazing Race” have until April 13 to register for SOMC’s second annual Amazing Race competition.
The event will be held in conjunction with several local sponsors and is scheduled to take place April 25 at the Portsmouth LIFE Center.
The competition is comprised of a series of events meant to provide both a physical and mental challenge, while also being fun and entertaining.
Teams will compete against one another for the chance to win up to $2,500. Each team will start at the SOMC LIFE Center Gym and be routed to their first challenge. Once there, they must complete a task to move to the next challenge location. After successfully completing all challenges, teams must report to the SOMC LIFE Center Gym for final scoring.
The Amazing Race is open to participants ages 10 and older, with no more than four people on a team. The team captain must be 18 or older. One may compete as an individual but may be at a disadvantage during some of the challenges. Teams are encouraged to get creative with names and costumes.
Once a team has been formed, it has until April 13 to register. Registration is limited to 75 teams and may be completed at TriStateRacer.com. Cost is $150 per team and all participants will be asked to sign a waiver.
All proceeds from the race will benefit the SOMC Development Foundation Community Health and Wellness Fund, which supports health and fitness opportunities in our community.
