About the Southern Ontario Amazing Race
The Southern Ontario Amazing Race (SOAR) is a two day adventure competition modeled after the TV show The Amazing Race. Twenty teams of two, race around Southern Ontario competing in challenges of all sorts that test racers’ mental and physical strengths. Racers collect pledges prior to the event for The Children’s Foundation. The teams that bring in the most pledges are given tokens that help them during the race. Shortcuts allow teams to skip an entire challenge, Tune-Ups give teams a hint or head-start at a challenge and Yields allow a team to force a following team to wait 15 minutes at the Yield sign. In the 12 years of the race’s existence, teams have raised $800,000 dollars!
