“Amazing Race” registration open

Fans of “The Amazing Race” have an opportunity to feel the thrill of the competition for themselves. Southern Ohio Medical Center is hosting a local “Amazing Race” competition in conjunction with several local sponsors.

The event is comprised of a series of events meant to provide both a physical and mental challenge, while also being fun and entertaining. “Amazing Race” teams will compete against one another for the chance to win up to $2,500.

Teams may consist of no more than four people, all of whom must be at least 18 years of age. If preferred, individuals are also permitted to compete on their own. Creative team names, and even costumes, are also encouraged.

Once a team has been formed, it has until April 12 to register. Registration may be completed at TriStateRacer.com and costs $150 per team. All participants will also be asked to sign a waiver in order to participate.

Proceeds from the “Amazing Race” will go towards to the SOMC Development Foundation’s Community Health and Wellness Fund, which supports health and fitness opportunities in the community.
