WCF’s Amazing Race has participants answer puzzles, solve riddles, and capture pictures or trinkets as part of a designated drive around the city of Wixom and its neighboring communities. The Amazing Race is composed of a series of encrypted messages that need to be solved. Once understood, each message will direct teams to drive to a specific location where they must find the answer to a question. Each correct answer is worth points. The most points wins.
There will be a prize awarded to first place. All participants will receive raffle tickets based on the points they accumulate and are used for entering raffles for additional prizes at the final location. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased, as well.
All proceeds benefit the many great causes the Wixom Community Foundation supports.
Registration is $50 per vehicle/group. To register, fill out the form below and pay the entry fee (separate action).
More about WCF’s The Amazing Race
It’s a scavenger hunt/adventure race, and you’ll learn a little about the wonderful city of Wixom and surrounding communities. Each adventure consists of puzzles to locations that you are guided to where you are required to answer another question or puzzle to receive your next instruction. All you need is your own mobile device and an Internet connection.
At each destination, you’ll explore your surroundings, attempting to quickly locate items or the next clue.
Teams are timed and each item found will be appraised and a combination of these two factors will be used to rank you against other teams.
Entry fee: $50.00 – price is per team (car), not per person. Groups can be any size, but teams of two, three or four work best.
Please fill out the registration form and then pay the registration fee. Thanks!
