Cornwall Ontario — The Cornwall Chamber of Commerce plans to kick off a busy fall season with its own version of the Amazing Race. The event will take place on Saturday, September 6. “All of us at the Chamber are excited about this fun event, and it is a great way to promote team building, an active lifestyle, and to explore Cornwall”, declares Megan Brownell, Events Coordinator. “Not only will it be a frantic and hilarious competition between the teams, there is a terrific prize for the winners.”
The idea of a local race was created by Brownell who describes how the event will work. “We have a course set up in Cornwall. The competition will consist of teams of two and each team will walk, bike and run over the length of the course as they compete in a series of activities that will test both their physical and mental strengths.” Then, there is the reward at the end of the Race. “Winners of the Chamber’s first ever Amazing Race will not only win a cash prize of $1,000.00, they will also win two round trip tickets to Boston, compliments of Cape Air, our regional carrier that flies from Massena, New York”, continued Brownell who also announced that a number of area businesses are sponsors of the event. To participate, here are the details.
Teams can register by visiting the Chamber website or by telephoning 613-933-4004, ext. 222. Registration is now on and teams that register before August 15 will get an ‘early-bird’ fee of $100. From August 16 on, the registration fee will be $120.
