Alleycat Race 2009
This has been a week overdue. Me and my partner Glenn joined the Alleycat Race last Saturday, the day before the Earth Run race. Its the 2nd Alleycat race, and we won the executive category last year, so we were pretty much excited to join this race again. We didn't know that we were in for a great treat this year. The race points are filled with more challenging tasks which includes mental and physical activities.
To those who aren't familiar with the race, it is similar to Amazing Race except that you move from one point to another using your bikes. The goal is to earn as many points as you can by visiting designated points and completing the different tasks. There is a cut off time of 1 hour and 45minutes, so within the alloted time frame, you need to collect as many points as you can.
The challenges involved some whacky challenges such as shooting a football in a goal while the person to kick is blind foolded. There are all sorts of puzzles and tasks that involved mathematical skills.
It was really a great experience. For this year though, we didn't win 1st place, but we won 6th place overall and got 2 thousand cash and gift packs from Columbia.
Can't wait for the next Alleycat Race!
