- IT IS….a scavenger hunt race patterned after the TV reality show “The Amazing Race,” only shorter!
- IT IS….A lot of fun, Imagine just you and your teammate, matching wits against other similar teams, racing around Washington following clues, encountering road blocks and working their way through challenges, fun detours and a variety of tasks. Can you hear the crowd yelling as you reach the finish line. Will your team win the $1000.00 grand prize?
- IT IS… a race from the starting line for each 2-person team to solve clues to locate challenge stations (Pit Stops) where they must successfully complete challenges, navigating roadblocks and detours – competing against other teams to receive their next clue/challenge…until they reach the end of the race.
