2018 Rules for the Amazing Race for Charity

EVENT DATE & PLACE
April 7, 2018 in Eustis, Florida

 

PRE RACE PACKET PICKUP
Monday, April 2nd, 4:00 pm to 7:00 pm 
Amazing Race Business Expo at the 
Golden Triangle YMCA
1465 David Walker Drive, Tavares

Your packet will include pre-race instructions, two bib numbers and two shirts. You may pick up other teams’ packets for them.


Unfortunately, there is NO RACE DAY packet pick-up, unless your team is from more than 25 miles from Eustis.

If you are traveling farther than 25 miles, you MUST ARRIVE at least 45 minutes early on race day to pick up your race packet at the registration/information desk in Ferran Park. The best address for GPS systems is 50 Ferran Park Drive, Eustis, Florida 32726.

YOUR BIB NUMBER
Each team member must wear a bib number on race day. Pin the bib to your front of your race shirt, which must be worn on race day. Make sure you confirm your start time on your bib number.

GETTING TO THE RACE AND CHECKING IN
Everyone must check in at least 30 minutes prior to your start time at the following location:  Fountain Green Park, 101 East Magnolia Avenue, Eustis, Florida 32726.

RACE PARKING
Proceed to Downtown Eustis and park in any of the public parking areas. If you do not yet have your packet, you may report to the Registration Tent in Ferran Park for check-in. If you already have your packet, you can proceed to the Finish Line Festival to start your race. Starting at the Finish? Yep, cause you need to visit vendors at the Finish Line Festival who will sign your "school enrollment" sheet that is required for you to start our EDUCATION-THEMED 2018 Amazing Race for Charity.

STARTING LINE
At least 15 minutes before your start time, please proceed to the starting line in Fountain Green at the corner of Magnolia Avenue and Eustis Street.

WHAT TO BRING RACE DAY
Race t-shirts, with bib numbers pinned on front, MUST be worn by all participants on race day. Your shoes will likely take a beating, so don't wear those brand new $100 Nikes. Don’t forget your sense of humor! The race is, above all else, really really fun!

You must have an ID with you to drink beer. If you check in at the beer tent when you arrive and get a wristband showing you have been ID'd, you can stow your ID in your car so you don't have to carry it through the race. Also, you can retrieve your ID after the race and get carded for beer. Either way you choose, you will be required to show ID to receive beer.

When you finish the race, report to the photo booth to receive a print of your free starting line photo, courtesy of United Southern Bank.   

This year, your bib will include your drink and food tickets.  Your drink tickets are redeemable at the beer tent or for non-alcoholic beverages. Your food tickets will entitle each team member to a meal. This year, Crazy Gator Restaurant is providing hamburgers and hotdogs.  If you have requested a vegetarian meal, you will need to make sure your bib ticket indicates this option.  We will only have as many vegetarian meals as have been ordered by racers.

An ideal location for family and spectators is the race start area as many challenges are close. The race course map will be published and distributed on Monday, April 2nd at the Amazing Race for Charity Business Expo at the Golden Triangle YMCA from 4-7pm.  Give the map to family and friends so they can pick out places to watch you. The map will also be available on our website.

ROAD RULES 
At the starting line, you will be ordered by your starting time. 3 to 4 teams will start every minute, beginning at 9:00 am.

NO ROADS WILL BE CLOSED FOR THE RACE. Please stay on the sidewalk and obey all signals from police officers and crossing guards. Please cross only at a signal or stoplight.

The course may have steep sections or rough, rocky terrain. Please GO SLOW and watch your footing.

You must obey all orders given by Law Enforcement, safety personnel and volunteers wearing race-provided t-shirts.

Pay attention to signs along the race course. Some of them may feature interesting facts that you will want to remember. Others will tell you where you must WALK SAFELY and NOT RUN.

COURSE CLOSING
The course will close at 2:00PM or when the last racers have finished each station.

AWARDS CEREMONY
We intend to hold the awards ceremony on the Bandshell in Ferran Park at 1:00pm. We will announce the awards ceremony at least 15 minutes before the start so you can gather at the bandshell in the park. Awards will be given in several categories, including:

Male/Female

Male/Male

Female/Female

Parent/Child

Corporate Cup

Best Dressed Team

WEATHER
The race will be modified to deal with weather issues, but it is considered a “rain or shine” race, so come ready to race in any kind of weather!
