NEW Real life amazing race coming your way!
« on: April 18, 2018, 03:51:59 PM »
Hi All,

Lurker here. A group of us is starting a race company that is similar to amazing race but in individual cities in the US. We are just starting out but I thought this board would be a very good place to get ideas and feedback. We are doing 2 races this year and 30 next year.

Our website is www.wheretonextrace.com

If you have any thoughts or questions, I would love to hear them.

Thanks!

Dan

Wow, that's a really cool idea!
Is there going to be any way to follow this? I assume you're not gonna film it, but any way to see tasks, places, etc.?

Has the OP watched the Canadian edition? That's how one does a non-finale urban North American leg.

P.S. What's the reason for the list of cities skimping on Seattle and Portland?

Thank you! We are building a following on instagram currently and will post highlights. Many clues will go out via our twitter account also. We hope to do race summaries with video and descriptions as well.

I am not familiar with the Canadian edition.

The reason for skipping Seattle and Portland is just our team is small and I live in DC. We would love to get there but we are weak on the West Coast currently. :-)

Then, Daniel, now would be the time to see TARCAN in order to learn the proper structuring of challenges in this continent's cities!

There are a lot of cool/historical places in Downtown, surrounding suburbs also are nice.
