This weekend, the Student Activities Board will present a special “Hillsdale Edition” of The Amazing Race, leading students and their teams through a variety of locations and clues across campus and downtown Hillsdale.
The Amazing Race teams will meet at the Roche Sports Complex on April 7, from 1 to 3 p.m. The Amazing Race is most commonly known for its popular television series, where individuals travel the world to complete challenges.
For the “Amazing Race: Hillsdale Edition,” 10 teams, comprised of five students each, will explore 10 unique locations associated with their own challenge and clues leading them to their next spot.
“The scavenger hunt will be around the community, both off and on campus, as we partner with local businesses,” Director of Student Activities Ashlyn Landherr said. “Locals wanted to get involved so we found ways to incorporate them into the Amazing Race.”
A special prize will be offered to the winning team, but both the end location and prize remain secret, according to Landherr.
As sign-ups are already full, SAB says fellow students are welcome to join and watch their friends as they complete challenges.
“We have chosen places that perfectly encapsulate our town and the businesses that make it unique,” SAB member and sophomore Mollie Dill said. “We hope that this will inspire students to go out and experience their town and all of the wonderful things it has to offer.”
