What a Weekend!

As the 2017 Southern Ontario Amazing Race comes to a close, we would like to thank our sponsors, volunteers and racers for supporting us! In 2017, the race raised over $85,705 for the Children’s Foundation of Guelph Wellington. Since the race’s inception, in 2004, teams have raised over $900,000.

What an amazing first time racing experience! It’s fantastic how each year this dedicated group of volunteer directors are able to professionally produce such a challenging and thrilling race…linked to a thoroughly successful fundraising campaign!

I must say that was an incredible experience. The team at the Southern Ontario Amazing Race put together a truly amazing adventure for all of us! We met one of the greatest group of volunteers you could have help motivating you through this tough challenge, recording our moves and making sure we kept going.

We can’t think of another adventure race that’s better organized, more exciting or where racers can truly say they’ve had life-altering experiences (or one where the racers are fed better!).

It is one of the best organized and meticulously thought out races I have experienced. The people are amazing. The food is amazing. The cause is amazing.
