Limo Rides, overnight vacations and a range of other prizes are up for grabs in this weekend’s Amazing Race in Gainesville. Alachua County Hospitality Council Member Erica Chatman says participants don’t get the reward without a fair amount of effort.
“We’ve had them dig coins out of a fountain… sometimes they’ll have to do a little dance at one of the locations in front of the judges,” she says.
Chatman says up to 50 teams will drive around the city answering trivia questions and performing these silly tasks, to try to complete their race card before all others. The race begins tomorrow at Westside Park at 10 AM with registration opening at 9 AM. Chatman says the race gives a unique look at local attractions and both local and out-of-city residents have attended in the past.
