Sign Up Today For The Amazing Adventure Race Of Acadiana

From the Adventure Race Of Acadiana Facebook Page:

The Amazing Race of Acadiana is a city-wide challenge race combining challenges that are physical (kayaking, running, rock climbing), mental (puzzle solving, trivia, strategizing), and even silly (singing, dancing, eating contests), which scatters teams of two all over Acadiana. Fantastic prizes are also awarded to the top fundraising teams, best costume, most creative name, etc. From the starting line, teams are given a clue leading them to another checkpoint and they must successfully complete challenges—following clues—until they reach the end of the race. Teams must raise funds to benefit The Refinery Mission organization in order to qualify for the race and the top 50 fundraising teams will compete in the race in an effort to win their share of the $6,000 cash prize!
The Race will begin and end at Vermilionville in Lafayette. From the starting line, teams are given a clue leading them to another checkpoint and they must successfully complete challenges—following clues—until they reach the end of the race at the finish mat. Clues provided in each leg lead the teams to the next destination or direct them to perform a task, either together or by a single member. Racers will run, walk, bike, or take the city bus, based on Clue Directions, to get to each challenge along a route about 15 miles long containing 14-16 challenges. The conclusion of the race involves a check presentation to the winning teams as well as prizes to other top performing teams.
Transportation during race may include: Walking, Running, Kayaking/Canoeing, Biking, Taking City Bus, and/or Riding in a Vehicle
