The Amazing Race for Charity has start and finish lines, but you must complete 20 quirky challenges in between that will challenge your team's agility, problem-solving skills and sense of humor!
Teams of two compete in this half running half biking event. You and your partner will start out in beautiful downtown Eustis and navigate a course through this quaint southern town, stopping at businesses, schools and churches to complete wacky challenges in a race to the Finish Line Festival.
Awards will be given in five categories (male/female, male/male, female/female, parent/child, corporate cup) and the overall fastest team will receive a $500 cash prize!
Even better, proceeds from the race will benefit at least twelve local charities, including the Young People's Theatre and the Eustis High School Athletic Boosters.
Each team will receive two quick-dry race shirts and tickets for two meals and two beers (or non-alcoholic beverages) for the after race Finish Line Festival in the lakefront park.
Registration is limited to the first 600 teams, so register now!
