Grant County Parks and Recreation will have their own version of “The Amazing Race” on April 28 at Grant County Park in Crittenden.
“I’m just excited to see this come to fruition and to be able have community members come out and participate in something fun,” said Tabatha Clemons, parks and recreation director. “This is something a family can participate in or four friends or co-workers. I’m excited about the possibilities. It’s so great, especially this time of year, to get outside and visit with people.”
The cost is $10 per four-person team for the competition.
Youth are invited to be part of a team, but there must also be an adult on the team.
The number of teams will be limited so interested participants are asked to register at www.grantcountyparks.com or call 428-4500.
Sign-in will be at 10 a.m. with the race expected to begin at 10:30 a.m.
The race will begin in the park’s cattle barn, where each team will get a different clue to start that will lead them to a challenge somewhere in the park.
Once a challenge is completed, the team will be handed another clue.
There will be between 10 to 15 challenges during the race, each manned by a local business.
First and second place prizes will be awarded at the end of the race to the teams that complete all challenges and return to the home base the quickest.
Prize baskets will include T-shirts, Body Works gym memberships and Williamstown Band of Spirit raffle tickets for a car-giveaway, along with other donated prizes.
