Description

The Mega Race is a one day Amazing Race style adventure culinary scavenger hunt extravaganza race filled with puzzles, secret businesses, checkpoints, tasks, wine, beers & lots more with over 30 local businesses around calgary participating! You will also get a food or drink sample from over 25 of the businesses!

There will be prizes all from local businesses around Calgary!

This is a basic schedule of the day:

11am - 12pm Registration

12pm - 2pm STAGE 1

2pm - 2:30pm Break

2:30pm - 4:30pm STAGE 2

4:30pm - 5pm Break

5pm - 7pm STAGE 3

7pm - 7:30pm Awards Handed Out

The day will start with a brief meeting with coffee where you will be given a Passport Guide Book filled with puzzles. You will then solve the puzzles to reveal participating businesses. then, it’s up to you to map your own route to get to them all as fast as you can to beat the other teams. Every business will have a special task for you to complete and will stamp your Passport Guide Book upon completion. There will be 3 stages in total and a checkpoint at the end of stage 1 with a break to go get lunch & a very short break after stage 2. If you fail horribly on one stage, you still have a chance to recover and win the next one as everybody resets and starts stage 2 & 3 with a new Passport Guide Book. The top average finisher will be awarded the Mega Bowl with a treasure box filled with prizes and the top finsihers will get a small treasure box with prizes.

So what makes this an ULTIMATE race? Heres whats new for this race:

1. We will no longer give you the name of where the checkpoints are, you will have to solve puzzles during the race to figure out where Chekpopint 1, Checkpoint 2 & the Final Checklpint is.

2. Every business will give you a clue and or part of the Checkpoint Puzzle to solve.

3. The top finishers will get a treasure box that will have your prizes inside.

There will be prizes for the best finishers in each stage.

There will be additional prizes for special categories such as Best Costume, Best Team Name, Best Social Media Content and so on so, be sure to come dressed up!

Every team is allowed driver (but be sure drink responsibly if the task involves alcohol). The driver doesn’t have to complete the task. Minors and children can participate. The only food that will be provided are samples from some (hopefully most) of the businesses.

We are local Calgarians who love to support amazing local businesses! As that is one of our main goals keep in mind the businesses are donating their time (and samples!) so be sure to have a good look around while you’re there and plan to go back!
