Tri-State Amazing Race

The Tri-State Amazing Race will be held Saturday, May 11, 2019, at the Colonial Theater, 27 Railroad St., Canaan, CT 06018. Ben Wolfert is the lead sponsor.

The Race is inspired by the successful TV show The Amazing Race. At the starting point (The Colonial Theater), two-person teams are given a clue which aims them to their first destination where they may be challenged with a task that they must successfully perform before they are given a clue to take them to their next destination.

Tasks may be either physical or mental. Not every destination will necessarily have a task. Teams will need cars to travel between destinations.

The entry fee is $40 per team, and pre-registration is required. Registrants age 18 and above are eligible, 16 – 18 year olds need parental permission for the waiver. Sign up soon because there is a 20 team limit. Each registrant will receive a free T shirt.

To pre-register, call or text Erin Fowler at (860) 806-3223.

Deadline for registration is April 20th.

Race Day Schedule:

10:00 am First clue given out and Race begins.

The finish line, like the previous destinations, is a secret.

The first place team will win $1000 !

Proceeds from the event will benefit Be As You Wear which “funds grass roots prevention, intervention and recovery research and to end the staggering number of fatal drug and alcohol overdoses.”

Looking For Something Fun?

Looking for something fun to do on a May Saturday?  Then consider this exciting  event coming May 11th to a theater near you – the Tri-State Amazing Race.

This is a new event organized by Erin Fowler and inspired by the popular television show  Amazing Race.  The goal is to raise money to fight substance abuse  in our area.

Here’s how it works- two-person teams with a car all gather at the Colonial Theater (that’s the “at a theater near you” part) in Canaan, CT. Each team is given a clue to guide them to the first destination where they are given a task to perform and a clue to the next destination.

After many destinations the winning team will receive $1,000! But sign up quickly because registration closes April 20th.
