Registration Underway for Amazing Race

Registration is underway for the UMass Amazing Race, a biannual event sponsored by the Center for Multicultural Advancement and Student Success (CMASS) and the UMass Amherst Police Department. This highly interactive event provides an excellent opportunity for students to engage in healthy competition, as well as interact with members of the UMass Police and CMASS.

The Amazing Race will take place on Friday, Nov. 4 from 6:30-11 p.m.

Teams consisting of three members strive to arrive first at “pit stops” at the end of each leg of the race. Clues are provided in each leg that will lead teams to the next destination where they will perform a task, either together or by a single member. The teams must visit all the destinations and complete the challenges in the order given. The first three teams that arrive back at Wilder Hall will be awarded the first, second and third prizes.
