Game Details – 2020 Amazing Race to Recovery

  • Placement in the competition will be based on a point system, not how fast a team completes the entire program. The winning team will be the one that accumulates the most points during the allotted time. Running and aggressive behavior will not be allowed and may get a team disqualified.

 

  • 9:00 am contestants arrive, register and receive their packet. The packet includes a list of challenges that can be done in any order in the Mall before the stores open at 10 am, or at any other time during the event. The packet will also include a clue or puzzle of some kind that will help the team figure out which store they will start at after the stores open.
     

  • The community forum will begin at 9 am and last about 1 hour.
     

  • The Amazing Race Challenges will being at 10am
     

  • Teams will complete as many challenges in the Mall as they can before the stores open. They will have a sheet with the challenges listed and will most likely have to answer a number of questions on the sheet which will require them to find items and collect information throughout the mall. All team members must all be present during the in-store challenges. This series of challenges will be worth 25 to 100 points, depending on the difficulty and will be scored when the competition ends at noon and the teams return and hand in the sheet.
     

  • Teams will have different starting points, like a shot gun start for a golf tournament.
     

  • Once the team completes a challenge the judge will; record their team number and score on a tally sheet and give the team a clue that will lead them to the next challenge location. Each store challenge will be worth a maximum of 100 points. The team may opt to complete some of the “Mall challenges” on route to the next location if they did not have time to complete them all before the stores open.
     

  • Teams will also be awarded points for their fund-raising efforts on First Giving.
     

  • All Challenges end at 1 pm and teams will have until 1:15 to check in and hand in their forms. 
     

  • We will announce the top 3 teams. Those teams will be asked to perform a “shoot out” challenge . Extra points will be given to the team that wins the shoot out and may impact who wins the event.
     

  • Lastly, we announce the winner and second and third place teams as well as the teams that raised the most money; present them with a certificate and take pictures for social media and press releases.
     

  • At 2 pm the event will end.
