We’re all familiar with the famous TV series ‘The Amazing Race’. Well, 6S held it’s own fitness version on Saturday August 29th! We gave 6 teams of 3 a map of the downtown core with various challenges and a time cap to complete the work in. What were the challenges? Who finished the fasted to take the top spot? Read on to find out!
Teams of 3 were created and handed a map of the downtown core 5 minutes before go time. The teams didn’t know what the challenges were, or where they’d be located until they got the map. It was then up to the teams to strategize on which order they’d attack the challenges to get as many completed as possible and return to the start line before the time cap.
Teams all took off in different directions as 3,2,1 GO was called. Some went to the farthest locations and worked their way back, while others took on the closer locations. Some teams came prepared with travel tripods, and others created a jumping jack flash mob all caught on camera. Strategy paid off for the team with Dmitri, Paul, and Josh as they returned first completing all 9 challenges in 1 hour and 9 minutes. Runners up was the team with Adi, Carmelo and Andrew, finishing the race in 1 hour 4 minutes, but with only 8 challenges completed.
Congratulations to all the participants! We had a great day, had a great workout, and some even met new friends and teammates for the first time! We can’t wait to do the 6S Amazing Race again next year, only bigger and better!
