(KNSI) – The Amazing-East race takes to the streets of St. Cloud on Saturday.
Teams of two to four members will start and end at Lake George, and an audience is encouraged. They must then solve clues that will lead them to various businesses in the city center. At each stage, a challenge will test the competitors. Sam Switzer, director of marketing and communications for United Way of Central Minnesota, says this is the perfect event to help raise the organization’s profile in the community.
“We were really looking for a way to engage with our community in a different way. When we have all these events, we’re always looking at how we can reach people who may not know United Way and what’s a fun way to learn more but also have a good family experience at the same time. time.”
If you’re heading out for breakfast or shopping early in downtown St. Cloud, don’t be caught off guard. Switzer says you could end up with a prized spot for the competition.
“Last year we had people having breakfast at Jule’s [Bistro] and that turned out to be one of the challenge stops. So they could see firsthand the challenge that needed to be met there.
The race is designed to last three hours. Competitors are expected on the course from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
