Solving Niagara: Explore Niagara Falls Through an Urban Race!
Niagara Falls has an exciting event coming up in just under two weeks time. Solving Niagara: Don’t FALLS Behind Urban Race is an Amazing Race inspired event that challenges its participants through mental clues and physical challenges in order to get you and your partner to your next checkpoint in Niagara Falls. The date of this event is on Saturday, April 5th and you need to sign up in teams of two at www.niagaracollege.ca/solvingniagara. The fee is $35 per person with proceeds in support of the Many Hands Project who’s mission is “To develop community co-operation and pride through volunteer driven projects aimed at assisting non-profit organizations in the Niagara Region”, with focus on raising money for the Upper Deck Youth Centre in Vineland. Niagara College’s construction students will help to build and renovate this facility.
Solving Niagara requires each team to be given clues leading them to different pit stops and detours in the area. At each checkpoint, a type of physical, mental or photo challenge will be completed to receive the next clue and move on to the next challenge.
Sign in starts at 10am on race day and the race begins at 11:00am and will take roughly 3-3.5 hours to complete. The race will conclude at 4:00pm. In order to participate, please make sure one of you on your team has a smartphone. This is required for a couple of the clues where uploading photos to social media forums is mandatory.
The race will begin at the Oakes Garden Theatre, which was also the starting point of CTV’s “Amazing Race Canada”. In conjunction with this, Solving Niagara is excited to announce that this event will be hosted by Jet and Dave from the “Amazing Race Canada”!
