Have you always wanted to be in the Amazing Race? Now you can be. As a resident of apartments in Roanoke, VA now is the time to get active. Key Fitness and the Roanoke Avenue Business Alliance (RABA) are partnering to put on The Amazing Race on the Avenue at 9 a.m. May 5.
Based on the television reality show, The Amazing Race on the Avenue will be a 5K that calls for more than just physical ability.
Like the television show, teams of two will have to stop at multiple places and use clues to find their next stop. Once they find all the locations based on their clues, they can return to the finish line.
“Physical activity is a mindset, and participating in events like this is positive,” said Darren Harris, director of Key Fitness.
“This unique 5K is one of many ways Key Fitness is continuing to promote physical activity in the Roanoke Valley.”
Anyone of any age has a chance at winning this event, which will require wit and physical ability.
The race will begin at 9 a.m. May 5 in the Rosemary United Methodist Church parking lot, on the 800 block of Jackson Street.
Prizes will be awarded to winners in each age category, and age categories are decided based on the combined age of each two-person team.
Official event T-shirts will be given to all participants.
