The Great Rutland Race challenges teams Saturday

OCTOBER 6- The Great Rutland Race is an all day race/scavenger hunt (of sorts) that bring participants to points within a five-mile range of downtown. Teams of two will be sent all over the city on random assignments. All locations will remain confidential until participants receive their packet the morning of the race. Teams then have 45 minutes to plan what they think will be the fastest route. Jumping in a car is not permitted- participants must choose between going on foot and catching THE BUS to get from point to point. Teams are required to have some sort of matching theme. While wearing matching shirts does count, it is a lot more fun to have coordinated costumes!

All profits will go to the Rutland Recreation Scholarship fund.

The fee to participate is $70 pre-registration or $80 on race day (if there is space.) The race is limited to 30 teams. To register visit
