Socially Distanced Race will keep ‘amazing’ theme in Vermilion

The Good Life Institute will be hosting a Socially Distanced Race of Vermilion on June 27.

Throughout their homes, online and around Vermilion participants will try their best to complete a list of tasks, physical and mental challenges along with adventures in the form of a scavenger hunt.

Teams will be given from 12:00-4:00pm, and can be comprised of two-six members. Entry will cost $50 per team.

According to event coordinator, Candice Anderson, each item on the list will have a point value assigned to it and completion of the items will be determined by photos submitted through email.

A winner will be determined based on the total point value accumulated, and prizes will be awarded to the top three finishers.

In order to allow the coordinator time to organize and score all of the photo submissions, the winner will not be determined until July 8.

Originating in 2016, this will mark the 5th Anniversary of the event. In others years, the event has grown to host hundreds of participants from around the province and has required dozens of local volunteers. This year the format has been adjusted to comply with provincial regulations.

“With the new format, it’s a great family option as well,” said Anderson.

“The Race of Vermilion still has the ‘amazing’ premises of fun and exploration. We do not have limitations on registration for this year, but the deadline to register is June 20,” said Anderson.
