Anna (Raced 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013)

My name is Anna, and I’ve had the privilege of racing for four years with my amazing sister, Julia. There have been so many fantastic moments and challenges in the race, I don’t think I can list just one! Some memorable challenges were rappelling down the side of a church tower, going for a ride […]

John (Raced 2012, 2013 and 2014)

John here, (the less valuable) half of Team John and Amanda, former SOAR racers in 2012, 2013 and 2014. I had the privilege of racing with my then fiancé, now wife, Amanda in all three years. We’d always been interested in shows like the Amazing Race and Survivor, so much so that early on in […]

Emma (Raced 2008, 2009 and 2010)

My name is Emma (above right). I raced in SOAR three amazing times (2008, 2009, 2010) with two different partners.  The first two years I raced with a friend from university, Jocelyn.

Emma had heard of SOAR through a friend, and we both decided we were crazy enough to give it a try. We put our application together, took some amazingly awesome application pictures, and crossed our […]

Sabina (Raced 2015 & 2017)

My name is Sabina, and I raced in both 2015 and 2017 with my husband, Ben. When thinking about my favourite SOAR memory, it’s difficult to pin down just one! The signature “ultra-cool challenge” is always such a highlight! It’s usually something unique that you probably wouldn’t otherwise get to do on your own and […]

Heather (Raced 2014)

My Name is Heather (right) and I raced in 2014 with my boyfriend (now husband). A month before the race he was in a motorcycle accident and broke his leg. He asked his friend Lindsay (left) to run in his place as he hoped as a teacher/runner, she would make a great partner. We only […]
