Rotary’s Amazing Race 2012 in Coquitlam

Rotary Amazing Race Coquitlam 2012

It may be hard to imagine it right now, with the winter weather that hit us this week, but warmer days will come again. And when they do, you may actually want to get outside and enjoy them. To help you get a head start on a little bit of warm weather fun, Coquitlam Sunrise Rotary is asking you to sign up for Rotary’s Amazing Race.

The race challenges you to put your mind, body and team spirit to the test in a race around Coquitlam. Your team of four participants will complete many tasks in your race to the finish line. Some are physically challenging, and others are just plain fun. All of them are for a good cause, as funds raised will help to benefit literacy. There is no million-dollar prize for coming in first, but you’ll have the satisfaction of being champions, and knowing you benefited a great cause. Plus, participating can help create a higher level of teamwork in your workplace, sports team, family, or with your friends.

The race starts at 10:00am on Saturday, June 16, 2012. The start and finish lines are both at Place Maillardville. Past races featured challenges such as building a bear for charity at Build-A-Bear, racing canoes at Lafarge Lake, finding items at IKEA, playing beach volleyball and running the Coquitlam Crunch. I don’t know about you, but I’d rock the IKEA challenge.

After the race, participants will join all their fellow competitors at the wrap-up party and dinner. T-shirts and bandanas will be given to each participant, which you can wear with pride. There will also be draw prizes. Lunch will be provided during the race and dinner will be provided at the wrap-up party.

The race is limited to 40 teams, and pre-registration is required. Visit the website to download the registration form, and find out more.
